Thread Name: Martin Said to His Man
Subject: RE: Martin Said to His Man
I'm thinking of reviving this at my local folk club. The new landlord is called Martin, and last Friday he got drunk and landed on his a**e. It usually takes them a few months to settle in before they do that, but he's only been in the job a week!
Anyway, the way I interpret the words is that Martin is telling his servant to fill the cup with wine, while he p1sses in the can in the corner. I may even do a gesture suggesting this. After all, the song dates from 1609, when folks were lewder and songs were ruder.
Contemporary satirical verses are always welcome:
I heard Ms Theresa May
Saying that she's here to stay.
