Oh, THAT song!

THE GOOD IN LIVING
(Steven Sellors)

If the fiddle strings felt no bow-stroke,
If the concertina bellows broke,
If no one sang or cracked a joke
Then where's the good in living?

Chorus:
And all of life plays like a tune,
It sounds so sweet and ends too soon
You'd better rosin up your bow
Before it's time to go.

If no one threw their feet about,
If the Guinness boys stopped making stout
You'd soon forget what life is all about
And soon become quite thirsty.
Chorus

When all you own is hocked or pawned,
When all your money's spent and gone
You'll find out what you've been living on
And never even knew!
Chorus

If the fiddle strings felt no bow-stroke,
If the concertina bellows broke,
If no one sang or cracked a joke
Then where's the good in living?^^

(On "Faith's Favorites," a CD by Faith Petric, FaithPet@aol.com)
Also recorded by Sally Rogers and Howie Bursen on "When Howie Met Sally." Anybody know of other recordings?
Glad you brought us back on track, Dick. Anybody know how to get hold of Sellors?
