Thread Name: Origins: Streets of London (Ralph McTell)^^^
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Streets of London
I guess it's like having a vacuum cleaner known as a hoover- the originator loses control over his material unless he asserts it. Not through reputable singers, but through cowboys... and I think it's reasonable for writers, who ponder over the exact word to use, to ensure that their ponderings are not hacked about...
