Thread Name: Lyr Req: Songs of Men Disguised as Women
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Songs of Men Disguised as Women
There's a difference; women dressing as men in songs do so out of heroism -

In comes the captain's daughter, the captain of the Yeos*,
Saying, "Brave United man, we'll ne'er again be foes.
"A thousand pounds I'll give you, and fly from home with thee
"And dress myself in man's attire, and fight for liberty!"

* Ultra-Protestant militia raised to suppress the United Irishman Risings of 1798-1803
