Subject: RE: Self righteous prats
Well... sometimes these prats are not self-righteous, merely right. A singer may occasionally invert lyrics, as in, "Lift that barge, tote that bale..." Have you ever tried to lift a barge?
Oops! I shouldn't have used that example. From now on there will be an entire generation of Mudcatters who will be unable to do "Ol' Man River" without glancing at the notes pinned to their sleeves!
