Oral sex songs might sound like a rarity, but it's actually more common than you might think. Sometimes artists are blatant with their messages, and in other cases, a musician might use more subtle means to get their point across. This could be because they want to diss someone else in the industry, or perhaps they want to sneak their song by censors to make it onto the radio.

Unfortunately, when it comes to these songs you never realized were about oral sex, there is a good chance that you might have sung along to them (maybe with your parents even) without having given a second thought to their secret meaning. After reading this article, you can be forever embarrassed that you belted lyrics to songs about going down on someone in front of your closest family members.

Don't be too embarrassed though - there are countless songs secretly about oral sex, and several of them might surprise you. Just take a look at these examples to see how many tracks are not as innocent as they might seem at first.

    'Brain' - N.E.R.D.

    It’s entirely possible to listen to “Brain” by N.E.R.D. and think that it is all about the turmoil a man is going through in deciding whether he likes a girl for her personality or her beauty. What many might not realize when listening to the single, however, is that the word "brain" in this context is slang and has nothing to do with intelligence. Once you know that, the true meaning of the song becomes much more obvious. 

    Choice Lyrics:

    Girl unlatch your bra

    But first unlatch your jaw

    It's cool to call me dog

    But your head is under my paw

    Soon as your lips part

    Then your tongue it starts

      Unlike the 1958 song of the same name by the Chordettes – an innocent track inspired by the candy – Lil Wayne's "Lollipop" is fairly lewd. A quick look at the lyrics reveals that the lollipop in question isn’t actually a lollipop at all. 

      Choice Lyrics:

      I said, he's so sweet, make her wanna lick the wrapper

      So I let her lick the rapper

      She, she, she licked me like a lollipop

      She, she licked me like a lollipop

        'Twist' - Goldfrapp

        Since Goldfrapp's "Twist" is an electronic dance tune, it can be difficult to pay much attention to the actual lyrics rather than the music behind them. Those who do pay some attention to the words, however, might discover that “Twist” is all about the attraction between a woman and a carnival worker. 

        Alison Goldfrapp explained the meaning behind the song, saying, “It's a sort of sexual fantasy that I had about a boy who worked at the fairground, who I lusted after.”

        Choice Lyrics:

        Before you go and leave this town

        I want to see you one more time

        Put your dirty angel face

        Between my legs and knicker lace

          “Cherry Pie” by Warrant falls into the category of songs for which the meaning should be pretty obvious, but a surprising amount of people don’t get the not-so-subtle references littered throughout the track. Once you accept that the title of the song is just acting as a slang term for female anatomy, the whole picture becomes much more clear.

          The constant allusions to the "cherry pie" tasting good and the frequent references to “swingin’” in lots of different places make it clearer still.

          Choice Lyrics:

          She's my cherry pie

          Cool drink of water such a sweet surprise

          Tastes so good makes a grown man cry

          Sweet Cherry Pie
