GUEST,Oz Lyr Req: The Lampton Worm? / The Lambton Worm (30) RE: The Lampton Worm 12 May 12

In what is probably another thread, someone from Allendale Town in Northumberland, west/southwest of Newcastle, posted some lyrics, and in doing so solved a problem I have long had: the printed lyrics say, "Then Lambton felt inclined to gan and fight in foreign wars. So he jined a troupe of knights that cared for neither wounds nor scars."

I sing this song to myself all the time and used to inflict it on my children. But I have never known whether "neither" was "NEETHER" or "NIGHTHER". The parent from Allendale's First School says, "NOWTHER." I like that. I don't know if it's right, but it sure solves the problem. (And, having spent a lovely night in Allendale a few years ago, I long ago decided that if I had it to do over again, I'd send my kids to Allendale First School -- a lovely town, a lovely county, and I think a first-rate school).
