KitKat Are folk lyrics ever 'wrong?' (77* d) RE: Are folk lyrics ever 'wrong?' 24 May 01


I think it depends - if the songwriter is still alive and the lyrics are easily available to find as the songwriter intended, it seems perverse (and discourteous) to sing it any other way. As for traditional songs, where there is room for debate, sing what you think best interprets the song.

Where does that put me - about 1.5 I guess.
