GUEST,SteveG Peggy Ramsey - please translate Scots-English (29) RE: Peggy Ramsey - pls transl Scots-English 27 Jan 12


What makes you think the song is Scottish? If it's in Pills there's a very strong likelihood it was written by Tom himself. Pseudo-Scotttish songs were very popular towards the end of the 17th century.
It's full of the euphemisms one gets in many a song of its type, but looking at the last verse this one pushes the point rather too far.

It's getting late. If you really want a full explanation I'll have a go tomorrow.
