Subject: RE: SALAL (song by duo with this name)
Hi Guest 999

Many years ago the duet of two women sang a song which went

One fine summers day I woman went walking
down by the river so gentle and free
and there she espied a beautiful sailor
sitting alone in the shade of a tree
she boldly stepped up to this young man
pray tell me me from whence you came
for my eyes have not featsed on such beauty
and may never do so again

the story gooes on to tell how she ravishes him, has her wicked way with him and leaves him forlorn bewailing his plight, one line has him crying "oh mother I am quite undone"

I've been after the words for 30 years, maybe one day ....
