kytrad, interesting that yours,the Burns song and SOME others have the 'nose in the air' suggestion. I've always liked the Burns one for the story of a girl who's looking for a 'better' match, egged on by her friends. And the faithful, poorer lover who, in the first verse, tells her, "Go - no skin off my nose." (Always a good ploy!)

Also reminds me of "My Poor Brown Coat and Me" ... but in that case he does find another and she marries 'bad'. (No pinks in that one, though.)
