George S. - Seems there were several threads on that song. I haven't gone back to re-read them, but do vaguely recall someone positing originality for St John's song. Certainly, he can claim a right in his own words, and pehaps in a musical arrangement, but I was not persuaded by the originality claim. With all the wisdom (and humor) of hindsight, ir seems a bit "Gore-ish." (Sorry, folks, I just couldn't pass it up.)
