Gender Bender

"Polka Dots and Moonbeams" is a fine song and Stacey Kent can be, on occasion, a fine singer however, a girl singing about seeing... 'Polka dots and moonbeams all around a pugnosed dream' doesn't sound quite right.
I know one or two pugnosed guys but none of them prance around in polka dots and if I suggested that they did it would be my nose that became pugnified and I'd be seeing stars rather than moonbeams.
When Ella sang "Have You Met Miss Jones?" she changed it to Have you Met Sir Jones?" and that didn't sound right either.
Any others?

I cannot think of any examples at present, but of course there are many that do work very well,I am thinking of "The boy/girl next door" great verse that has too! I wonder if, in those far off days when the great & the good were writing, they kept this in mind?
