Subject: A song my grandmother used to sing From: Date: 29-Jul-99 - 04:30 PM

I'm trying to find the title, words and a midi file to a drinking song my gandmother used to sing. It's probably Scottish, English or Irish in origin (fairly obvious, given I already said it's a drinking song).

The lyrics go somethign like this:

.... When in trafalgar square, you'll see me standing there on a pillar, just like Nelson In my top-hat, my tail-coat, my sporin and my kilt I called on Winston Churchhill....

Anybody know this song? Any and all replies will be appreciated.
