ollaimh Politically incorrect songs (113* d) RE: Politically incorrect songs 11 Jan 13

yeah the vancouver folk song ss had a different view than ahem, THE REST OF THE WORLD.

the other one that used to pisss off the nice middle class anglos was the old new foundland song "thank you very much "(tune red haired boy)

when i was just a young man at the start of married life
i asked me loving father to how to treat me darling wife
never hit a woman me little darling man
never hit a woman with a hatchet in her hand

thank you very much for the very nice advice
i used it once or twice when i was on thin ice

never steal a nickel my little darling man
never steal a nickel lunless its over fifty grand


they went balistic to the cape breton song "the heavy water plant"
(to a tune almost what do you do with a drunken sailor)
(the heavy water plant was a make work project that failed)

i left me home at quarter to ten
i headed for the heavy water plant
haven't worked since heaven knows when
singing a song of cape breton

i picked me poggie up on george street(poggie is our dole)
i headed for the bank on the corner
new life seems to come to me feet
singing a song of cape breton

the poggie cashed right into my hand
i headed for the nearest tavern
jesus by christ i'm the king of the land
singing a song of capre breton

i found a table down at the back
i ordered two by christ i was thirsty
finished them off at the very first crack
singing a song of cape breton

in comes macneil from margaree
he must have got his poggie yesterday
he's so drunk he can hardly see
singing a song of cape breton

its four o'clock and much to my sorrow
i shoulda tried the heavy water plant
ah ta hell i'll go tommorrow
singing a song of cape breton

i think the old band kiltarlity wrote that gem

the nice bourgeoise were stunned that working class guy drink when they should be looking for work. it is horrifying.
