Bob Bolton Lyr Req: Camp Song @ Australians & Codfish (17) RE: Lyr Req: Camp Song @ Australians & Codfish 15 Jul 12


G'day GUEST Pam/ GUEST,

I think I still have the same opinion as 11 + years ago: Somebody has gathered in a version ( ... or two ...) of the shanty, which is ... like any shanty ... only peripheral to the country currently named ... and decided to see how many rhyming couplets they can create from the pattern ... and a very loose idea of what might actually happen, in Australia, over ( ...down ... ) on the other side of the world!

That's no real criticism, per se, as it's pretty much what I have always though of the Cod Fish Shanty.

Shanties don't have to make sense ... just rhythms ... and WORK effort!

Regard(les)s,

Bob
