Thread Name: Lyr Req/Add: Roller Bowler
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Roller Bowler
Indeed, I always think of Barry Finn when I think of "Roller Bowler." In the little tribute song to him that I wrote I included the phrase "roller bowler" as a nod to that and his "roll" in popularizing the song Stateside.

Now, I wonder how "roley boley" was sung by the minstrels?
