"Somebody told me that you had a boyfriend who looked like a girlfriend that I had in February of last year..." that song by the Killers. I am blanking on the title.

"(Wo)Man" by me.
Also, anything by David Bowie.
The Negative Creep lyrics are Daddy's little girl ain't a girl no more.
"Venus As a Boy" by Bjork.
Also, anything by the Future Sluts.

not really a subtext when it's so far in the foreground but:

almost any velvet underground song that has a girl's name in the title
("candy says I've come to hate my body")

almost any antony and the johnsons song
("someday I'll grow up and be a beautiful woman but for today I am a boy") (also does a cover of "candy says" that candy darling liked better than the origional)

union square by tom waits ("the guy dress is a beauty, go all the way, I swear you never can tell")
