Bert Hansell Mouth Music or any Gaelic songs (16) RE: Mouth Music or any Gaelic songs 21 May 97

Now Now, Bert you've got to stop hitting return on the "From:" field.

I think there might be one
It has always seemed to me that there was a similarity between "Suzanna's a funicle man"(The Sow Song) and the music of Brittany. So much so that I have wondered if the song was either written to deliberately poke fun at the Breton Chanteurs or whether it was a half forgotten memory.

The line...
(snort) OW - (whistle) OW - (pfftht) Idle - E - Dow
...could be a replacement for the misunderstood words of a foreign language.
And the phrase "Sing lassy go rings below" has always reminded me of "avec mes sabots" from "En passant par la Lorraine".

What do you think?
