Subject: RE: MEANING of ' gaudie' in Sweet Kumadee??
Gaudir is a Spanish possibly Catalan verb and may have a French verb of similar meaning I think that in the context of the song the wordy Flashy or ostentatious would be polite term >>> in English >>> the, big bastard capable of doing a lot of damage as a French Man of War, Gallion was! being a noun derived from the verb
