Thread Name: Obit: what happened to Shag Connor?
Subject: RE: Obit: what happened to Shag Connor?
Talking of Shag Connors (yes, I'm a fan of his too) there's one song on the Furzlin' album I've never been able to make out the words to. Seeing this thread has reminded me, and I thought I'd ask if anyone can help.

I think the song is called "Au Pair Girl" and starts something like (this is from memory so could be wrong):

"She was an au pair girl from Austria..." and it's in 3/4 time.

But it's the last line of the verse that is sort of yodelled, that I can't make out. Does anyone know what the lyrics are?

In fact Shag (Mick) was a very good singer and an accomplished yodeller.

You're right GUEST,The Roadie, Shag wrote a lot of songs that were hits for Brendan Shine in Ireland. I have some of those records too.
