Errr ..... you've lost me a bit there Jack. Which quote doesn't make sense and posted when?
Well spotted that I got her name wrong. It's the way I happened to write it into my personal song book and it has rather stuck in my mind. Funny that should say "White" as I've been told that that's what Feher (forgotten how to do accents; can anyone remind me?) means in Hungarian.
I wrote the note for my own sake in order to try to sort out the contents of the original thread, which was quite long and had both speculative and (what seemed like) authoritative statements. I would have to refer back to the original thread to answer your last two questions, and right now I can't be bothered as I've better things to do, but I imagine it was said that Collins published a songbook which had the song in it. As I don't have any such songbook I can't say whether her text was attributed to anyone, or even if it resmbles Lloyd's version.
