GUEST,Ewan McVicar Lyr Req: Suzanna's a Funniful Man (36) RE: Lyr Req: Suzanna's a Funniful Man 06 Apr 04


I got the Scottish version I sing from manuscript in the Greig Duncan Collection. It appears in Volume 8, no 1661. Collected 21st October 1907 from Mrs Gillespie, who got it from Jamieson, music teacher, Pitsligo.

The tune is marked as Lillibolero, but is the verse of that tune only. I've changed the tune quite a bit. It has been a big hit for me in Holland, Russia and New Hampshire.

2] Our little pigs lie with their tails half cocked

3]Our old sow makes the finest of pork

4] Our old sow gives the finest of bacon, bacon [grunt] -acon
