GUEST,Bruce O. Bawdy songs for women to sing (97* d) RE: Bawdy songs for women to sing 18 Apr 01

There are a lot of dometic strife ballads, but they aren't usually very bawdy. See "The Cobbler of Colchester" (Elizaethan) in the Collier's Forgeries file on my website (he didn't forge all of it and I've all that's in the original). "Dick German the Cobler" (on Bodley Ballads website it's "Dick Darling the Cobler") [cobbler and cobler spellings seem to be about equal]. They often hinge on the husand's excessive drinking habits (little time at home and no money left for family necessities).
