Thread Name: Origin: The Old Triangle
Subject: RE: The Old Triangle
While I thought that Walt was a bit over the top with his use of imagery, Big Tim's opening remark is obviously correct. I've heard that verse sung with the words "Then me old triangle...".
If you want to sing the song with an accent other than your own then the appropriate accent is obviously a Dublin accent, since the song is set here in Dublin and Behan, being a Dub, would have sung it that way too.
