Subject: RE: Ilkley moor - other songs about it?
My brother John Hanna M.A. a student of northern dialects for many years; told me the correct translation of 'baht hat'.

'WITHOUT ANYTHING = NAKED' - You do not catch cold on Ilkley Moor not wearing your hat, but you could almost certainly do so without wearing anything!
