Gender-Inappropriate Songs

I am curious to see if something is peculiar to me, or whether it's more widespread.
Do you ever find yourself singing songs that conflict with your gender? For example, if I were to sing "All Right Here" by Sara Groves, I would end up singing the line, "I'm not God. I'm a girl, I confess." If I were to sing "Stupid Girls" by Pink, I would be singing the line "Push up my bra like that. I don't wanna be a stupid girl." Being male, these lyrics would obviously sound strange coming out of my mouth. I, therefore, try to catch myself when I realize I'm singing these types of songs in public, even though they can be earworms. Is this something that just happens to me, or is it common?
