Subject: RE: Lyr Req: She Was Poor (Same The Whole World Over)
From my school (and rugby playing) days, there were many other verses. Although no suited to mixed company!

She stood on the bridge at midnight,
Flicking snot-balls at the moon.
She said "Sir, I've never had it"
But she spoke too f****** soon.

She stood on the bridge at midnight
Youthful face, and chest quite flat.
She was quite the winsome virgin.
But I soon took care of that.

We also reversed two lines of the chorus:

"It's the same the whole world over.
It's the rich that gets the pleasure.
It's the poor that gets the blame.
Ain't it all a bleeding shame?"

It seemed to scan better!

Cheers
