Thread Name: Donkey Riding - What's Hong-ki-kong?
Subject: RE: Donkey Riding - What's Hong-ki-kong?
Cleaned up? It's only versions by scurrilous sailors and those (forgive me for mentioning the name!) drunken chantey singers that need censoring.
Pure, innocent Canadian children have kept more of the sense of the original; a simple litle song about visiting towns along the Channel, and across the water in sober, upright Canada.
