Orac Help: Dirty Old Town? Meaning??? (324* d) RE: Help: Dirty Old Town? Meaning??? 26 Jun 02


I've nerver heard anyone sing anything but "I met my love by the Gasworks Croft" for the first line ... anything else is just plain wrong. ... paints a pretty good picture of what used to be a pretty awful place to try to court a girl.
