Subject: RE: Cod Liver Oil
Another very late post - did this really start in 1997?
Fascinating to read all the old songs again - must go back home to Glasgow sometime and see if people still know what the hell they're all about. Many's the time I went home on the last 37 bus from Springburn to Castlemilk.
The song about Derry and Cumbie and the later correction about the Norman Conks and San Toy ('Toi' by the 60's),reminded me of the full original version of the much more serious and provocative 'Billy Boys' from Bridgeton in the 30's and which my mixed Catholic/Protestant parents and grandparents, for their own reasons, would not discuss.
First line 'If you're feeling sad and lonley and your heart just skips a beat.....' Anyone care to finish?
