More ambiguous song lyrics

I remember a one-liner from one of Rodney Dangerfield's old routines. It went like this:
Even in high school, I got no respect. A girl called me up and said, "Why don't you come on over? There's nobody home." I went over. There was nobody home!
I was reminded of it when I went with my cousin and Glen to see Shrek 2 while I was in Austin last week. The dance number at the end of the movie was "Livin' La Vida Loca," and one line went:
She'll make you take your clothes off and go dancing in the rain
It had me imagining a dialogue in some never-released Rodney Dangerfield movie...
RD: She said she'd make me take my clothes off and go dancing in the rain!

Other guy: Sounds kinky! So what happened?

RD: She made me take my clothes off, and then while I was standing there ready to go, she went dancing in the rain! No respect, I tell ya!
