Thread Name: Bawdy songs for women to sing
Subject: RE: Bawdy songs for women to sing
Nancy--

May I suggest looking thru Elizabethan material?? Bawdy songs haven't been the same since Bess died. Somewhere I have a tape of "My Thing is My Own," for example, which is sung by a young woman besieged by a whole series of men in ways she describes in terms of their professions, e.g. "A master of music came with the intent/ To give me a lesson on my instrument," etc. I will try to dig up discography on that, but try the title on DT and wherever else you know to search titles.
