Thread Name: What makes a good bawdy lyric ?
Subject: RE: BS: What makes a good bawdy lyric ?
Most of these songs, if not all, were intended to be song while drinking and thus were capable of provoking more uninhibated laughter than in a concert setting before a congregation of PLURAL NOUN (substitute your favorite uptight PC group). On sober reflection, the morning or afternoon after, fewer of these songs would provoke mirth. The exception, of course, would be the ballad of "Anthony Clare."
