Thread Name: The Best Song Lines EVER--For Us Newbies
Subject: RE: The Best Song Lines EVER--For Us Newbies
If anyone really wants to know, "Show Us the Length" was written by Bob Bossin and/or Marie-Lynn Hammond (the latter I think) and recorded first by their (Canadian) band Stringband. And it's not their best, or necessarily even funniest, song.

But personally I'm partial to our very own Aine's:

And though London may be quaint
Going back I never ain't
I'm as Irish as a Texas girl can be!

(in the Mudcat songbook, the last line is the title)
