Thread Name: Help: Meaning of 'Chicken on a Raft'
Subject: Chicken on a raft
Chicken on a raft is a great Cyril Tawney shanty and I keep meaning to try it at my local FC but some clever sod is bound to ask me what it means. So, any idea why there's a chicken on a raft? (maybe it's the marine equivalent of chicken in basket?) And what's a dabtoe? Any offers gratefully rec'd as ever...
