Subject: RE: Lyr Add: The Twang Man
I sang this song in the sixties. I always presumed that Billy in the bowl meant sexual intercourse. Growing up in the 40s and 50s we used the word mot all the time for girl friend. Of course we didn't pronounce the 't'. I remember a girl coming to our door once and asking me "who's your mot?" This was in Primrose st in Phibsboro.
