CeltArctic Folklore: Henry & Liza (5) Folklore: Henry & Liza 31 Mar 10


You are probably all familiar with the kids song:

There's a hole in my bucket, dear Liza, dear Liza
There's a hole in my bucket, dear Liza, a hole.

Then fix it, dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry,
Then fix it, dear Henry, dear Henry, fix it...

And so on.

I was having a conversation with someone the other day about My fair Lady. It occurred to me that the main characters were also called Henry and Liza.

Do Mudcatters think this is a coincidence, or do you think that the play is somehow vaguely linked to the children's verse?

Just curious,

Moira Cameron
