Thread Name: Lyr Req: Cod Liver Oil
Subject: RE: Cod Liver Oil
Hamish recorded the song several times and used slightly different lyrics. The version in Henry's Songbook that Jon's posting refers to came from 'I Was Born In Glasgow', an LP of Glasgow songs produced by Ewan McVicar in 1991. I have two more but can't recall their precise lyrics.
I'd love to know what 'Sahara and a ra camel' actually means - 'under a camel' was all I could work out, but it has always sounded too sane to me! Unfortunately, Hamish did not include the lyrics in his book, although it takes its title from the song. Pity!
