Thread Name: Changing lyrics to the 3rd person
Subject: RE: Changing lyrics to the 3rd person
Hmmm... I have sung this one several times in public without changing anything,

Three Lovely Lassies In Bannion

It always gets a .... reaction.

I actually got it from a Burl Ives recording.

There are some songs that really ought to be changed to reflect the singer's identity, and some where it is just a good song that needs singing and is hard to alter.
