"All About that Bass" | ♡ Meghan Trainor Lyrics Debate

I work overnights, at the moment, for a living, and like most girls my age, when we hear a good song on the radio, and weactually like it, when no customers are around, we will dance to it! This is how I felt when I first heard Meghan Trainor’s voice over the radio and “All About that Bass” began playing.
Then the lyrics changed.

WHY??!?!!!

Yeah, it’s pretty clear, I ain’t no size two
But I can make it, make it, like I’m supposed to do
‘Cause I got them smooth moves they say I look great
Yeah, I’ll be the star on all them big stages.

So, these are the Radio Clean lyrics. And “shake it” and “junk” don’t seem to bother the radio folks who are responsible for changing tracks to make them more “clean.”

Yeah, my mama she told me “don’t worry about your size”
(Shoo wop wop, sha-ooh wop wop)
She says, “Boys like a little more booty to hold at night”
(That booty, uh, that booty booty)
You know I won’t be no stick figure silicone Barbie doll
So if that what you’re into, then go ‘head and move along

And then these were the lyrics I heard instead:

Yeah, my mama she told me “don’t worry about your size”
(Shoo wop wop, sha-ooh wop wop)
She says, “Boys like a little more booty to hold at night”
(That booty, uh, that booty booty)
You know I won’t be no stick figure silicone Barbie doll
So if that what you’re into, then go ‘head and move along

“I got them smooth moves, they say I look great. Yeah, I’ll be the star on all them big stages.”

In truth, I can’t believe Meghan Trainor agreed willingly to record a version that is 100% off-base from the message her original track sets the positive example for.
The only word I can understand changing for Radio playing purposes, is Sh*t.
But still, even that is tame compare to the F-Bomb.
