Subject: RE: Origins: If the Wind Had Only Blown the Other Way
My late Mother (Born London, 1915) would occasionally sing the chorus from this song, but her version was slightly different:

If the wind had only blown the other way
I might have been a different girl today
Instead of pushing perambulators*,
I'd be riding in my carriage
If the wind had only blown the other way.
