What does that song mean?

Songs with Sexual Euphemisms

What's the name of your tiddy-wink? What do you call your tally-whacker? And what do you call it when your fiddle-dee-dee diddles someone's daisy? For some reason, we need volumes of silly words to mean the act of Doing It, and all the biological equipment pertaining thereto. Can't we just call everything what it is and be done with it? No, because, see, there's people who get offended when you talk about it, as if they didn't have a tally-whacker of their own. Then we have to make up new secret names for everything, but then the code words get out and the offended people get offended at that, too.

So we end up with oodles and oodles of silly words that mean one word, and we keep making up new ones all the time. How's that for irony? These songs pay some kind of tribute to this phenomenon, whether by making sly references to one thing while pretending to talk about something else, or by just snowing you with their vocabulary while leaving no doubt what they're talking about. Which is making meadow mulch.
