Thread Name: Lyr Req: My Bonnie Lass She Smelleth (P Schickele)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: My Bonnie She Smelleth
Since no one has given any lyrics yet, I'll give the ones I remember.

My bonnie lass she smelleth
Making the flowers jealouth
Fa la la ...

My bonnie lass liketh to dance a lot
She's Guinevere and I'm Sir Lancelot
Fa la la ...

My bonnie lass would be nice
Yea, even at twice the price
Fa la la ...

End with improvised scat singinging of fa-la-las, merging into the fa-la-las of Deck The Halls, and bend the final note until it breaks.
