Scotus Lyr Add: The Swan Swims So Bonnie-O (16) RE: Lyr Add: The Swan Swims So Bonnie-O 06 Apr 06


- and strangely enough there IS an old ballad from the Fife coast (and not too far from Cellardyke) called 'The Elie Ladies' which is all about a girl being smuggled on board a ship in a barrel in place of a swan. Apparently it wasn't uncommon in those days to deliver swans in barrels for use as the main course in a banquet. Now would that hasten the the appearance of a mutated flu germ?!
