GUEST,Sara Lyr Req: Lumpy Tums (45) RE: Lyr Req: Lumpy Tums? 04 Sep 01


Hi all, This is the "mystery woman" from the Portland Observatory song swap. I just got home from sea and was amused to see the references to me in this thread! I just dug out the words as written in an Elissa volunteer songbook and noticed that they are ever so slightly different than the ones in the database. Concerning the question of Breadknock, in the version I have the third verse goes:

That Bradnock man, Jim Shaw who slew Ten valient French at Waterloo His nervous arm dealt them their dooms 'Cause he was reared on Lumpy Tums

After consultation with my "Big Road Atlas of Britain" I don't see any place called Bradnock, but there is a town called Bradnop and its even in Staffordshire. Maybe that is what it is supposed to be. I haven't tried the solfa thing, but if there is still any confusion about the tune, I would be happy to help out.
