Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Mademoiselle from Armentières
The second of Tom Hamilton's versions had a verse 12 variation that went:-

Nine months later her belly went pop,
Out came a Chav with a cast iron cock.

At that time (late 40's) chav was a common expression for a man that seems to have now come back to fashion but now has a degrogatory connotation that it did not have then.
