Thread Name: Lyr Req: If Wishes Were Fishes (Eric Bogle)
Subject: RE: Do you remember this song?-If wishes were fishes
Those of us over 60 remember the saying as:
If wishes were fishes, beggars would ride.

Meaning wishes are plentiful -- which is an entirely different thing. Bogle suggests we need MORE wishes. Always seemed a bit odd to me.
