Thread Name: moving to Norwich, UK
Subject: RE: moving to Norwich, UK
Karen & I sing / play this song.Written by one Sydney Carter,it refers to one Julienne,or Julien,a monastic lady of medieval times,now appearing in the song as Julian (of the eponymous Tower).
I don't recall any other songs about,or mentioning,Norwich,but I do remember from my Navy days that the word Norwich was much used,on the back of envelopes,by sailors writing home to their girlfriends ,as it meant " (K)nickers Off Ready When I Come Home "-----personally, I preferred " Burma for Siam", but I digress ...sorry !
