Alan of Australia Lyr Req: The Thing (Charles R. Grean; Phil Harris) (15) RE: Lyr Req: The Thing 20 Nov 00

Good example of carefully choosing your search string. Seaching for [the thing] will find every song containing "the thing". e.g. the umpteenth verse of Alice's Restaurant includes the line "and all kinds of stuff that they was doin' to me at the thing". IvanB's choice of [right before my eyes] is much better.

Now, what about the tune - bydand's post taken from Lyrics World says it's "The Tailor's Boy". It should be "The Lincolnshire Poacher", or is this another name for the same tune?
