Thread Name: Lyr Req: Idlers and Skivers (Keith Marsden)
Subject: Corrections: Idlers and Skivers^^
Many thanks to Morticia for taking the time and effort to type the words for 'Idlers and Skivers. This was one of the best songs ever written by Keith who dedicated it to 'Our Blessed Lady Margaret of Finchley. All Keith's songs are available in the book we wrote after his death--Picking Sooty Blackberries. I'll be happy to sell a copy to anyone out there - just ask.
Very minor corrections.
1.VERSE1. Handouts.
2.Chorus. Poor man's hat.
3.Verse2. Oiks and erks.
Died a lot to win etc
4.Verse3. To fill the admans'
5.Verse4. We marched towards
But it turned
As they showed
6.Verse5. Never fear you've call up papers on the way
Best be ready
7.Verse6. So we will rebuild^^

We hope to be in America in Oct/Nov.
