Celtaddict Lyr Req: A Mon Like Thee - extra verses? (30) RE: ADD: A Mon Like Thee - extra verses? 24 Aug 09

MMario, that sounds like a much better substitute than the 'honey dew' by far.
I do not like slurs in song or tale, and think rewording them for performance for general public (as opposed to scholarly presentation when of course they should be as authentic as possible) makes sense. I understand the stereotype of the Jewish moneylender, but it does seem interesting to me that the assumption of riches is in itself seen as a slur.
