Thread Name: Is 'Streets of London' a folk song
Subject: RE: Is 'Streets of London' a folk song
Why would the addressee be a woman????????
And far from putting down someone else's pain, the song is highlighting it, Jack.
Highlighting it for every selfish, uncaring, unfeeling b*stard, male or female, who pushes the homeless out of the way, or ignores them completely, because they make them feel 'uneasy' as they worry about not finding the right shoes to wear for tonight's party, or not being able to get the car of their dreams in the right colour, or their curtains don't match, or they can't get the beer they want...etc..etc
And you think *Ralph* was being arrogant?
