Subject: RE: song info: Jolly Rogues of Lynn
....this is one of my favorite examples of an 'almost' song...(meaning it is almost about something) has a sort of catchy little tune, and starts to tell about something, but somewhere verses got lost, or the composer just never bothered, and by the time I had learned it, I was bored with it...and it bothers me that I CANT sustain interest in a song with such unfulfilled promise..*sigh*..I liked the damn thing till I payed attention to it..*grin*

The last verse seems to have been added just to make the catchy little tune last longer..
