Clancy Bros had a medley on one of their old albums...(It ISN"T because yer dirty, it ISNT because yer clean, Its because you've got the WHOOPing cough and eat margerine...)

Does anyone know which Clancey Bros record and.or which specific song this was, and when was it recorded?


Also, I'm interested in collecting more rhymes with the "not because your dirty/not because you're clean" line. I've usually read "it's not because you're dirty/it's not because you're clean/it's not because you've kiss a boy/behind the magazine.

Does anyone else know this version? If so, would you post the rest of the rhyme that you know and include demographics.

Thanks again!
