: Where does the phrase "boys will be girls" come from?

"Boys will be boys" is the only saying I know to be in general use, Eammon. Ray Davies, though, has the line:

Girls will be boys, and boys will be girls
It's a mixed up, muddled up, shook up world

in his classic song, 'Lola'.

Could this be what you're thinking of?
