Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Travelling Salesman songs - any more?
'Twas at an inn in Manchester -- The Cornstalks was the sign --
A famous public where commercials used to stop and dine.
A traveler one Christmas eve, so long had been his use,
Stopped in to spend the holiday and choose his Christmas goose, etc.
"Commercial" = commercial traveler = traveling salesman.
