Thread Name: Lyr/Tune Req: Off to Philadelphia
Subject: RE: Off to Philadelphia in the morning
(I should have added that the Philadelphia lawyer is imaginary. That is, I don't think you'd call a sophisticated attorney from New York or Kansas City a Philadelphia lawyer. The usage is more like, "Even a Philadelphia lawyer couldn't get you out of that!" I believe a good place to ask these questions is alt.english.usage--wish I had access to it!)
