Subject: RE: Proud Maisrie/Bonny Maisrie/Lady Margaret
Many thanks to all: yes it turned out to be the Gairdner Child all along, despite my good trouble and strife (wife, for the benefit of those who can't speak cockney rhymer) having been clear the song was called "Proud Maisrie". Now that reminds me of a verse from "The Cobbler Song": -

"Oh my wife she is bumpy she is lumpy/My wife she is like an old sack/And no matter how badly I beat her/Her mouth it goes clickety clack."

But you should hear what she says about me!
