Thread Name: Lyr Req: Parody of Willie McBride
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Parody of Willie McBride
Reading though the lyrics to the parody in the DT it says that "on the brew" is Belfast slang for on the dole. Thats not true...its Scottish. Eric Bogle uses the expression in one of his songs and says its Scottish slang on the record sleeve. So I'm sure thats where the person who did wrote the parody must have got it from.
