the way we sing it in one band I am in would sure qualify ;-)

I mean, just look at the lyrics:

"She'll Be Coming,"

"riding six white horses,"

"eatin chicken 'n' dumplings,"

"have to sleep with Grandpa,"

(plus we add a few more verses...)

remember that song lyrics have often reflected more than what you might think about 
the morals and culture of the times they were written. even many so-called nursery 
rhymes are based on political gossip, sexual hijinks among royals and other juicy
