Thread Name: Lyr Req: Mrs Stein Don't Rent to Gypsies Any More
Subject: Mrs. Stein Doesn't Rent to Gypsies
I haven't heard the song, Larry, but I'm wondering if it might be a humorous attack against prejudice, and not an attack against gypsies at all.
Click here for MacColl's powerful "Moving On Song." If you search the database for @gypsy (or click here), you'll find others.
But heck, let's not judge the Mrs. Stein song until we've seen the lyrics. I e-mailed the Blarney Brothers and maybe they'll respond.
