The reason is, for 25 - 30 years now since it came out and was number one almost the world over, no one seemed to mind any of the lyrics. Until

'privacy' and every word out of your mouth that isn't strictly adhered to the 'general rules of NO OFFENDING' will be monitored 24/7; God forbid
you talk in your sleep.
When will they start monitoring our thoughts? Is that next?
