That's an interesting interpretation, leeneia. I never thought of it like that.

I still lean more towards the description of nouriss meaning that she is nourishing her child with milk, but I have only heard the version I quoted from above. I didn't realise that there are different lyrics which could lean towards different interpretations of how she ended up with a baby by a strange (in more ways than one) man.
