Steve Gardham Folklore: High-Mettled P----O (10) RE: Folklore: High-Mettled P----O 17 Apr 22

Thanks for this. I knew the cat would come up trumps.

Another possibility Pego could be just an extension of 'peg' but all possibilities welcome. I'm sure the Oxford 50 volume? dictionary would have its etymology.

Pronunciation? peggo? paygo? peego (watch the pee go:)

The same P----O occurs in a later song in the same book alongside just the simple p---k (presumably 'prick' in this case). All in the same verse we get P---O, P---k, and P----, oh and surprisingly to me anyway c--d--m, surely 'condom'.
