Thread Name: Bertsongs? (songs of A. L. 'Bert' Lloyd)
Subject: RE: Bertsongs?
"Performance is not about educating an audience"

In fact, on this forum, whenever the subject comes up of whether to alter potentially-offensive lyrics, there are always a number of contributors who insist that the songs should be left unchanged for what can only be called pedagogical reasons.
