GUEST,Glasgow Green Lyr Req: Peggy Lettermore (56* d) RE: Lyr Req: Peggy Lettermore 24 Feb 07


It has just occurred to me that the excruciatingly dull and banal lyrics of "Peggy Lettermore" are the reason why the Dubliners chose to sing it in Irish so mugs like me could say: "What a cracking tune! I wonder what this stirring anthem is all about?" Never for one instant thinking it's about a girl who spends all her time counting her cows and entertaining fishermen.

I bet the Dubliners never expected us to find out, lest we laugh ourselves sick.   

It's time for me to move on - this is the last post. Adios amigos, as we say in the Gorbals.
