Thread Name: Lyr ADD: Messing About on the River
Subject: RE: messing about on the river
My word, how life comes back to get you. The song was written by Tony Hatch, and recorded by a mate of mine, Josh Macrae, in about 1962. I regret I don't have the words available, nor of the parody I recall sung by Hamish Imlach :

There's nothing so fine as a wee glass of wine for messing about with your liver.

So I suppose I'm not much use to you. But thanks for the memory!
