Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Let Her Sleep Under the Bar / Lady in Red
My thanks to Bob (21 Jul 97) for the first version, which is almost identical to the one I heard in the early 50's from a fellow college man in our group of S&P (Scientific & Professional) draftees. Of course, that word in the seventh line rhymed with "dapper". And isn't the last line addressed to O'Leary? Shouldn't it read, "So remember your mother and sisters, lad, and let her sleep under the bar."?
