Gareth Lyr Add: House that Jerry Built (13) RE: Lyr Add: House that Jerry Built 26 Apr 04


Hmmm ! It would be nice to attribute the Phrase "Jerry-Built" to this ballad.

But consider the earlier use "Jury-built/rigged" ie a hodge-podge, or built out of what materials were avaiable.

Not that I is being pedantic, just a stone tossed into the pond to see what ripples form !!!
