If you try, you can use as an adverb --
A noun, an adjective or whatever,

Give the "lee" in tenderly a face-life,
It may wind up as, "Love Me Tender,"

If the gender is unknown, in this English of ours,
Am I sexist if I use the word "him?"

Is it wrong to say, "Loose as a long-necked goose?" --
Ask a double-entendre Rockford named Gym.
