Subject: RE: mis-heard lyrics (surely they didn't say...)
Well, the Celtic "Louie Louie" would have to be "Fionnghuala." "it's the enema (moan, moan)" <- is i eilean nam bothan, nam bothan "what she got in the shop" <- cha duir sinn dad ann a seo "barely dressed in an alley" <- bheireamaid greis ar an tarraing

In my misspent childhood, I thought the chorus of the Clancys' "Barnyards of Delgaty" began with "Cincinnati toor-an-elly"... ('stead of Lin-tin-addy)

thanx for yer patience...
