Thread Name: Chastity Belt - Missing Verse
Subject: RE: Chastity Belt - Missing Verse
Hangs together quite well as a story (if you'll forguive the language).

And I can't remember any other verses, and I can't see a need for any. I suppose you could have one with Sir Oswald coming home and seeing off the would-be-errant errant.

It used to be sung in Oxford Heritage Society (the university folk music society) back in the early 60s. I can't remember anyone claiming to have written it, but my impression was then that it was an Oxford song. Perhaps later generations got nervous about being taken to task for it.
