Jim Dixon Songs by Matt McGinn (1928-1977) (39) RE: Songs by Matt McGinn 24 May 20

Joe: Lyrics to THE WEE KIRKCUDBRIGHT CENTIPEDE were posted by Dale Rose on 9-Aug-99 in another thread: Songs about bugs, insects, spiders, snails, worms. I just listened to Matt McGinn's recording on Spotify, and I believe the lyrics posted by Dale are accurate. There are numerous differences to the version in the DT; for example "parlor glide" should be "Palais Glide"--the name of a popular dance from 1938 which is demonstrated in this old British Pathé newsreel.
