(AP) โ€” Lawmakers are eyeing a proposal to make Delaware’s official state song gender neutral.

A bill to be considered by a House committee on Wednesday removes the phrase “Here’s the loyal son that pledges Faith to good old Delaware” and replaces it with “Hear the loyal pledge we offer to the first state Delaware.”

The song would still refer, however, to “cheeks of merry maidens.”
