Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Songs of Men Disguised as Women
As far as I know, all versions of "The Tailor's Breeches" involve the tailor wearing women's clothes. And in Alexander Robb's version of "Jock Sheep", the scorned Knight gets his own back on the Lady by initially disguising himself as a pregnant woman. See -

Greig-Duncan 302A, II, 392-393.

There's further discussion of this in my Musical Traditions article
