Thread Name: Lyr Add: Three Nights and a Sunday (Matt McGinn)
Subject: RE: Help: Three nights and a Sunday double time
You're quite right, Ewan, to spot a few close relatives, one of them being 'Mary, My Scotch Bluebell' or 'I love a sausage'. When Matt lodged with me (a long while ago) in London, he suggested we write a song together and told me how he went about the process. He would take a well known tune, e.g. 'I left my baby lying there' and change certain parts to come up with 'Coorie Doon'. We never did write anything together.(!!)
