Thread Name: Lyr Req: McAlpine's Fusiliers
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: McAlpine's Fusiliers
As an example of "the folk process" I collected a parody of McAlpines whilst sailing on the M.V. King James in the early 1970s, from two A.Bs who had sailed with Shaw Saville & Albion. Their version 'Shaw Saville's Buccaneers' [full set of words in perma thread Merchant Navy songs] starts   "As down the quay at half past three came Shaw Saville's drunken crew".
