Some female singers change the gender of lyrics. (Silly Sisters, though, sing it as originally written by Colum Sands.)
e.g. in chorus: "...when you're dealing with the young men / For many's the woman fell asleep..." v.1 line 2: "And the 2nd time I saw him was on a Tues. afternoon / When he kissed me on a Wed..." etc.
