Something to keep in mind

In 1987, The Style Council released their third studio album, The Cost of Loving.

The album’s fourth song, ‘Fairy Tales’, is sung using feminine pronouns—clearly referring to Margaret Thatcher, then Prime Minister of the UK—but the first verse of the lyrics is printed as follows:

The giant towers over all
But from close distance he don’t seem that big at all
In fact he’s no more than you or I
Though we give him far more power than his size
