Thread Name: Lyr Req: Suitors (O Le Le O Bahia) (trad. Brazil)
Subject: RE: Marry now I will, when rivers run uphill (Suitors)
when i sang this song as a girl scout in the early 90s there was a last verse that kinda undermined the dying part of the song

and my father he was right
i'm a mother and a wife
i'm as happy as can be
in a paradise for three

my friends and i also came up with a parody about hitmen

there are hitmen at my door
sixty eight and even more
and my father wants me dead
or at least that's what he said
