What a stupid and pointless way to look at a song.

Should we blame 'Roddy McCorley' for giving the wrong date, 'Loughgall ambush' for not mentioning all people killed, 'Three score and ten' for getting date and numbers wrong and so on?

Should we scrutinise Picasso's 'Guernica' to see if he got a detail wrong, blame Goya for painting only a small fraction of those killed?
