Mo the caller Misheard folk song lyrics (51* d) RE: Misheard folk song lyrics 19 Mar 19

Thanks for the mumpsimus explanation Mr Red. Bit like the dancers who, having learnt the Cecil Sharp invention of 'siding' when he didn't know the meaning of a common term in Playford's Dancing Master of 1651, then wouldn't let him change the dances when research worked out a more plausible figure. So callers still have to specify 'Cecil Sharp siding' or 'Into line siding' and there are still some who call Cecil Sharp's version "the proper siding".
