Thread Name: Anti-alcohol, temperance songs
Subject: RE: Anti-alcohol, temperance songs
Friends used to do one about the Women's Christian Temperance Union (WCTU) years ago. I never heard it anywhere else so they may have written it. All I can remember after all this time is the chorus which was sung to the tune of the second half of the chorus of Wabash Cannonball.
We're against all forms of gamblin'
All sex and liquor too
And by our name we'll all be known
As the double-yew see tee yew.
If it isn't known anywhere else, maybe folks here can write new verses. Of course the song must ridicule temperance and the WCTU, not support it.
