I say this because I've heard lines similar to the ones quoted by Wayne Glowka (two old maids...) in a particularly raunchy song called "Stoop down Baby" in which the singer is trying to figure out a puzzling piece of anatomy on a female companion. I think also there are definite sexual connotations in such songs as "Dogging Around," "Hound Dog" and "Doing the Dog" (which was our version of the forbidden dance of the sixties) bhhudson[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]
