Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Three Score and ten?
At the risk of being taken for a curmudgeonly old bastard, I will say that the lyrics of this song are no better than dozens of similar disaster/murder/sensation crap found on broadsides from even earlier.
The only saving grace of this tedious offering is the tune, which alone saves it from being lost in some dusty archive.
Methinks it is somewhat repetitious. Methinks it overdramatic. And methinks again that it doth go on far too long.
I shall now await the storm I have so deservedly unleashed upon myself, methinks.
