pavane songs about disabilities (106* d) RE: songs about disabilities 23 Jun 12


No one seems to have mentioned a traditional song

Five Cripples

"Five London men with various disabilities, so well fitted that it appears their limbs are perfect, stop at a rural inn. They run up a huge tab. They remove their prostheses, are taken to be devils and persuaded to leave without paying the tab."

Related song Three Cripples was recorded by Martin Carthy many years ago.
