GUEST,Barrie Roberts Lyr/Tune Req: Spotted Dick (16) RE: Lyr Req: Tune too...'Spotted Dick' anyone??? 19 Aug 06


Glad to see this old favourite appear on the Mudcat. You should however beware of believing that the sexual connotation of 'gay' is modern -- it isn't. In low use it used to mean 'randy' or 'promiscuous'. 'Gaying pintle' was the male member and 'gay' as a verb simply meant to 'fornicate'. The Victorian whores' come-on was 'Are you gay?' and, until the early 20th Century prostitutes were referred to as 'gay women'.
Nevertheless, enjoy your roly-poly!
