Take for example the Beach Boys song "Cocomo," which I don't really know how to spell or if it's even the name of the song. But I'm sure you know it, y'know, "Aruba, Jamaica, ooo I wanna take ya . . ." etc, etc, so on and so forth. Well, in the folly of my youth, (namely dance class when I was four or five), I realized that these Beach Boys fellows were brothers, and I thought the line "come on pretty mamma" meant that they were asking their mom to take them to these nice vacation spots. I never really thought about a lady friend. I mean, I was the girl who was so ignorant that she wanted to marry her best (female) friend because then I could live with her. (On a side note, I never could figure out why no one would give me a direct answer of whether I could do that or not.) But yeah, the song takes on a very different tone when you think it's about a bunch of ten-year-olds begging their parents not to take them to the Grand Canyon for yet another family vacation.
