Subject: RE: wren in the furze
cleod, you did a beautiful job on that fast singing. Even with your transcription in hand it was a difficult listening. But I have one idea for verse 4 (after listening for twenty odd times): They might be singing "banks of the loan" mockingly alluding to the double meaning of the word "bank".
