Subject: RE: Champion at Keeping them Rolling
I am an old-timer, I travel the road
I sit in me wagon and lumber me load
Me hotel is the Jungle, a caf's me abode
And I'm well known to Blondie and Mary

Well known to Blondie and Mary...the first verse is a reference to the first verse of the Limerick Rake, just as Gibb Sahib said;

Limerick Rake

I am a young fellow that's easy and bold,
In Castletown Conners I'm very well known;
In Newcastle West I spent many a note
With Kitty and Molly and Mary.
