I read this and thought, "Wilson, you really do have a dirty mind."  Then I found:

Louisville Courier-Journal 12/22/1941 p 7 col 6

"Glenn Miller has lots of fun with the inappropriately named "A String of Pearls"
on Bluebird, backed by a smooth "Day Dreaming." "

So maybe 1940s people were just as depraved and perverted as folks today.
