I am a great fan of the double entendre and was most amused many years ago to discover that the film and music industry are not immune. The 1950 Kirk Douglas film "Young Man With a Horn" has raised some eyebrows as indeed has that great harp player and member of The Chieftains, Derek Bells marvellous album "Derek Bell Plays With Himself." Any Mudcatters got any more examples? and I don't want "The Secret Policeman's Ball."

I hated to hear my six-year-old daughter singing this one (complete with bump and grind). It wasn't so much the sexual entendre, but the passiveness it suggested.

Now this is the kind of question that makes me really miss my Dad. Off the top of his head he'd come up with a list of these things that would have you alternately wincing and laughing. From my limited folk song knowledge, I'd suggest the four McCurdy Dalliance records, whose raison d'être seems to be to highlight the double entendre.

A guy in England, years ago, called Ken Dodd did a song which went "Happiness happiness the greatest gift that I posses, I thank the Lord that I've been blessed with more than my share of happiness" Sang with poor diction it takes on a whole different meaning. Not really double entendre but still amusing. JohnB

From "I'm gonna sit right down and write myself a letter" (Fats Waller or Jelly Roll Morton?), the line "a lot of kisses on the bottom, I'll be glad I got 'em." One old dixieland musician called it the "kisses on the bottom" song.

The classic is of course, "Londonderry Air"

The last verse for the song Jolly Tinker:

Well I've been a jolly Tinker for these 40 years or more
But such a rusty hole as that, I've never blocked before.

One of my non-musical favorites is from the UK comedy Thin Blue Line - there is a lot of them in the show, but the best of them (especially from an American's perspective) was the one when the head of the detective squad was afraid that a mistake made by Rowan Atkinson's character would get him fired. The quote: Your cock-up: my ass! How that ever made it past even the Public Broadcasting Censors in the U.S. is beyond me.

If we are going to wallow in the gutter, how about taking famous movie titles and converting them to porno movie titles:

The Mighty Aphrodite= The Mighty Hermaphrodite.

Songcatcher = Schlongcatcher.

Saving Private Ryan = Shaving Ryan's Privates.

Children of a Lesser God = Children of a Lesser Sod.

Mr. Holland's Opus = Mr. Holland's Puss.

Just remembered another wonderfull one, it's more hidden meaning than outright double entendre, but v good NTL. "As I lifted her petticoat easy and slow,and I rolled up me sleeve for to buckle her shoe" An illusion to condoms which in Ireland where this song comes from, condoms were at that time illegal.

the classic line from the film 'porky's' which I'm sure inspired a lot of Bart Simpson's one liners, is the part where some one phones up the bar and asks for "Mike Hunt" The barmaid then shouts out to everybody in the bar " Has anybody seen Mike Hunt ?" I've seen this done and had to stuff a hanky in my mouth as I rolled onto the floor.

The other one is where the late Phil Lynott of Thin Lizzy would ask a girl in the audience if she had any Irish in her. When she replied no, he would then ask her if she wanted some. The Cad !

still a naughty boy at heart Ritchie.
