Richard Mellish Lyr Add: A Nice Quiet Day (from Gus Elen) (7) RE: Lyr Add: A Nice Quiet Day (from Gus Elen) 09 Jan 19


I know this by the title "Postman's Holiday", the irony being that the "nice quiet day" is spent walking for even more miles than on a working day.

And as for the "n" word; avoiding it obscures not only the fact that it was not regarded as objectionable when this song was written but also, arguably even more important, that black men often needed to work harder than white men in those days.
