Thread Name: Lyr Req: Pretty Peg (from The Bothy Band)
Subject: RE: Song name and lyrics wanted-Pretty Peg
Having analysed the lyrics of this song I have found that:

(a) The practice of locking the young lady in her bedroom at night is a questionable one, and may constiute a fundimental breeach of her civil rights;
(b) This practice is also at odds with health and safety guidelines and could pose a serious risk in the event of a fire;
(c) The existence of chimney pots and creels may imply the use of open turf fires, which may well be in breach of EU directives in relation to carbon emissions;
(d) The use of open fires may well constitute a fire hazard thereby exacerbating the situation outlined at (b) above.

I therefore and hereby must declare this song as closed until a certificate of compliance (in triplicate) can be obtained from the folk police. On the other hand IT'S ONLY A SONG!
