Subject: RE: Origins: The Dove She Is a Pretty Bird
Oh, THAT'S why the song sounded so familiar - it's just another frickin' version of "The Cuckoo," with the names changed to protect the innocent. But come to think of it, why do we have such romantic thoughts about doves? Aren't they just white pigeons?

And who likes pigeons? We laugh at "Poisoning Pigeons in the Park," but would we laugh about Poisoning Doves?

Food for thought.
