Thread Name: Amsterdam comes to the Góilín
Subject: RE: Amsterdam comes to the Góilín
For example: the nickname in the first verse is "The Scut", rather than "The Stud". A "scut" is a mildly derogatory general description of someone - probably from its older meaning as the tail of a rabbit or hare. ("scut" also exists as a verb - but that's a different story).
I know there are plans to provide transcriptions of all the songs in The Góilín Song Project eventually - but we can't wait that long, can we? ;>)>
