Reiver 2 Lyr Req: McAlpine's Fusiliers (57* d) RE: Lyr Req: McAlpine's Fusiliers 12 Sep 09

I thank you McGrath of Harlow! That explanation makes sense. At least it's explanation enough for me. I'm surprised that the explanation you give isn't a standard part of what Reiver 1 always referred to as "blather" -- a brief statement by the singer introducing the number he/she is about to sing and telling a little about it. Incidently, I think a brief introduction -- a little blather -- is always a good idea before each song. When we performed as The Reivers, I did most of the blather while Reiver 1 was a far better musician and singer. He used to suggest that maybe we should call ourselves "Blatherless and Singmore." [I like to believe that it was meant to be facetious.]
