Lyric substitution

I try to keep my song lyrics pretty PG-13, or less.

There's song from Chromeo with the line "Is that that way you treat your Mother-F****** friends?"

A radio-friendly work-around would be "Is that the way you treat your Mother And Her friends?"

"Mother AND-her" has the same cadence and inflection. And (bonus!) it results in an intelligible sentence -- albeit with a changed meaning.
