Thread Name: Where are all the black country songs?
Subject: RE: Where are all the black country songs?
Ok, Ok, I give in. Lye is a place name, it's between Stourbridge and Quarry Bank (two other places).
Thanks for your support Pete! Now, was that really so offensive, katlaughing? Only intelligible to those who've encountered the accent, which I can't actually do very well, it slips into Brummie, sorry, Birmingham, and Black Country folks get very snitty when you think they're from Birmingham! Oi be vrum Deb'n me dears.
Um - was anyone interested in the songs in my little book or have you already got them, Steve? Must get practising, friends from Alvechurch arriving on Friday, bit out of the area but they don't like being called Brummies either!
