Misleading subjects of songs

I currently know of two songs which play on the way women are often described using childish language in songs, revealing only at the end that the song is about an actual child.

Are there any others?

"Save your kisses for me" (Brotherhood of Man) was the first one I encountered; its refrain is used as a regular element in a children-focused music group we attend.


"The Naughty Lady of Shady Lane" (Ames Brothers) was mentioned to me by my father once I told him about "Kisses for me".
