GUEST,Anne Croucher Req: Miner's Lifeguard Parody (Shanty Singers) (12) RE: Req: Miner's Lifeguard Parody (Shanty Singers) 19 Jul 04

As I could never stand the first parody - my father was a union official and my family live in Barnsley - miners union HQ, or Arthur Scargill country as my mother used to call it, I look forward to hearing this and subsequent versions.

I must confess to making alterations to dire rhymes and sometimes writing a whole new version of something with many versions none of them very good, I added a verse to 'Buzzers Blowing' because it is too good to be so short, and now 'Shelves of Herring' has a couple more verses, one referring to the Atkins diet.

As I am not intending to do anything to impose my versions other than sing them and see what the reaction is, I don't think it does any harm. Fixing a rhyme is hardly a crime.

Please do parodise,
