GUEST,Kelly Origins: Slough-foot Sue? / Slewfoot Sue (51* d) RE: Origins: Slough-foot Sue / Slewfoot Sue / etc. 07 Jul 09

Here's my grandmother's version. I never saw it written, and I always thought she was saying Suefaslew! Sounds like Slewfoot Sue wins on that from the other versions.
There once was a girl I knew.
Her name was Slewfoot Sue.
She was the chief engineer at the shirt-tail factory
Down on riverside view.
Her face was all she had.
She had a form like a soft-shelled crab.
Every night she had a tussle with her patent-leather bustle.
Oh gee but she was bad!
