* In ''[[Disney/DarbyOGillandtheLittlePeople Darby O'Gill and the Little People]]'', Creator/SeanConnery sings "My Pretty Irish Girl". Shortly after, Creator/JanetMunro sings the same song referring to the same Irish Girl. Right at the end, both sing the song, with Connery ending on "Girl" and Munro ending on "Boy."

* Similar to the Los Campesinos! aversion, the Future Bible Heroes cover of "Don't You Want Me" by the HumanLeague has Claudia Gonson singing the male verse and Stephin Merritt singing the female verse (complete with the line "I was working as a waitress in a cocktail bar"). And Chia Pet's version of the same song is a duet between two female vocalists, also without changing any lyrics.

Added DiffLines:

* Music/SamanthaFish's version of Ted Taylor's "Somebody's Always Trying" changes the girlfriend people keep trying to steal into a boyfriend. Most of the changes were simply pronouns ("her" to "him"), but the line "every time I look around there's some new guy, filling up my baby's head with some kind of lie" becomes "every time I look around there's some new tease, filling up my baby's head with all kind of 'please.'"
