Other than a horse's name or a book's name, it's hard to find an
example. Google aforethought -malice .

Please say where you live, or what
area's English you are asking about.
So your question or answer makes sense.

Tennis me of this one :

Where do you go to, my lovely
When you come home from the dance?
Do you sit in your lonely apartment?
I want to get into your pants.
(Yes I do, yes I do, yes I do...)

While I understand the phrase, the literalist in me can't help thinking
that the pants aren't the interesting part.

Is "aforethought" ever used anywhere except after "malice"?
Other than a horse's name or a book's name, it's hard to find an
example. Google aforethought -malice .
Are you saying Malice Doesn't Live Here Anymore?
Someone better makes sure; or else there might be a defamation
suit.

Google Ngram suggests that "aforethought" is slightly more frequent
than "malice aforethought" but I didn't check to see if this was
artifactual. I briefly looked at COCA but gave up before figuring out
how to search it. (It apparently requires some sort of login, at
least if you use corpora.byu.edu's search interface.)

Yes, after a few searches you have to get a log-in. I doubt they're a
source of spam. Also, it will start asking you for money.

KWIC & sort by immediate left neighbor did the job well. I got 51
results, of which a handful had other left neighbors than "malice".

There's "benevolence a.", "callous a.", "knowledge a.", "planning a.",
"plans a." and "good will a." The rest have "malice" or "malicious" as
a close, not necessarily immediate left neighbor (e.g. "malicious, as
with direct aforethought").

So, in COCA, roughly 90% are preceded by "malice".

One of the hits was "Mallets Aforethought". There are a few other
parodistic titles like this in the Google results (Phallus, Malus, and,
yes, Alice),
