Thread Name: Cruel Sister
Subject: RE: Cruel Sister
A local group of three very talented young ladies (ages 18, 13, and 11) and their father have recorded a version with the same burden as Rosy gave above (probably the same melody), but adapted it to their family and sensibilities. The oldest sister pushes the boy in, in their version. They stop the song before he dies, though. It turns into a comical song. I'll post the words when I get another chance to listen to it.
