GUEST, Q about No Mans Land (40) Q about No Mans Land 12 Oct 00

There is a line from Eric Bogle's "No Man's Land" which is usually written out as "and did the pipes play the flowers of the forest?" When Bogle sings it it doesn't sound like he is saying "flowers". What is he saying?

Another question while I am on the subject. I have heard somewhere that Bogle wrote a trilogy of anti-war songs. I only know of two. The subject of the last paragraph and "And the Band Played Walzing Matilda." What is the third?
