Thread Name: Lyr Req: Down the Dark Alley
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Down the Dark Alley
I was always tolk this was a song to be passed down in the folk style of never writing any of it down in, it was "forbidden" to do so... Perhaps this was because my friend who taught it to me is a rennie who learned it in amtgard... And it took me years to find any bit of it online.

That said, my favorite verse was "all in orange, all in orange ::dramatic pause:: I f*cked her up one side and down the other cos nothing rhymes with orange..."

I know there were scads of other colors, including plaid and check, and others mentioned here.
