Subject: RE: SONG CHALLENGE: Barbie Lobster Tale
Ugh, I just noticed that neighboring "Deer Isle" sneaked in where "Mount Desert Isle" should be in the last verse. It does scan better but it's geographically askew. The verse should run:

Now as winter begins that cold north wind, sweeps down on the Mount Desert shore;
As them nights grow long there's rum and song, and no one ships out any more;
Jim and his friend, their jug upend, and grin at the drifting snow,
For soon as it's spring there'll be a new fling, for "Barbie's spring fashions are ready to go!"
