* Pinmonkey's cover of Matraca Berg's "That Train Don't Run" changed "He ran hard, he ran fast" in the beginning to "She ran hard, she ran fast", while "He kept on going and I changed my ways / Now I'm a good girl, I do what's right" became "She kept on going" and "Now I'm a good boy...".

* Pinmonkey's cover of Matraca Berg's "That Train Don't Run" changed "He ran hard, he ran fast" in Run", which is about being haunted by a former lover, so that all the beginning pronouns referring to "She ran hard, she ran fast", while "He kept on going and I changed my ways / Now I'm a good girl, I do what's right" became "She kept on going" and "Now I'm a good boy...".the lover were female instead of the original's male.

* Averted by Marissa Nadler's musical treatment of [[EdgarAllanPoe Poe's]] "Annabelle Lee," giving the tale a new LesYay flavor.

** [[https://youtu.be/wJStTqPmcMY Tom Gross]] also did a cover like that. (Only with the minor change to leave out the word "cousin"). But this version is more dramatic. It starts with a scene with a preacher from a christian church giving an [[HeteronormativeCrusader outright homophobic preachment]]. The whole cover has a [[Gayngst much more dramatic undertone]]

** Another Famous Music/LeonardCohen Song, ''Hallelujah'' isn't found to have adapted lyrics when covered by a female singer. Propably that's because all references to men (?) are not seen in reference to the singers gender. David seems to mean the old testament's (male) prophet of that name and god. In the Bible (Tora/ Koran) god is referenced to as [[MenAreTheExpendableGender male ruler]] (capital MALE pronouns) and [[AlwaysMale is considerd male]] by most christians (jews and muslims).

* Averted by Music/RichardCheese, who has no problem asking his bandmate to "lick his pussy", in his cover of ''My Neck, My Back'' (originally by Khia). Male covers playing this trope straight will change it to "lick my weenie and my sack" or "suck my cock and lick my sack".

* Ally Hill's cover of Girls/Girls/Boys (originally by Panic at the Disco) does this: While the original is about a boy who is'nt sure weather the girl he loves is a lesbian or bisexual (in which case he would have a chance) Ally takes the perspective of the girlfriend of said girl. While the male singer doesn't want to date the girl only to save her reputation Ally as her girlfriend slightly changes the lyrics and claims she doesn't want to continue to hide their relationship to save her reputation.
