It's not just the line "Don't marry her, have (Instead of the naughty word) me" in that song. The naughty version also has the line "She'll grab your Betty Swollox (Spoonerism), Then slowly raise her knee." That then becomes "She'll grab your Sandra Bullock's, Then slowly raise her knee."

I think the OP should have said "sung" not "sang".
