Thread Name: Any February Songs?
Subject: RE: Any February Songs?
Robin Dransfield's version of "Fair Maids of February" was written by him and his brother Barry. He wrote in the sleeve notes that 'fair maids of february' is an old country expression for snowdrops.
I don't know where Acorn4's version is from and can't find anything in the world wild wilderness. With the phrases "common as muck" and "load of wusses" it doesn't sound traditional.
