GUEST,Ray Lyr Req: Night Time in Italy ..... (11) RE: Lyr Req: Night Time in Italy ..... 30 Sep 20

The original lyrics are easy to come by but it’s alternative “anglicised” lyrics I’m looking for.

Unfortunately, lines such as “If you bump into Gallager you'll find that Shean is near” and “If there's sunshine in Washington, what makes the moonshine dear?” are probably time expired in the US and not understandable by the average UK audience.

From memory, one of the anglicised versions includes such lines as “Don’t ever try to milk a kipper” and “You can mock soup but you can’t mock turtle”.

If nobody can come up with one of the altrnatives, I’ll dig the old Robin Dransfield LP out and transcribe/post the lyrics.
