Thread Name: Lyr Req: Bonny Susie Clellan?
Subject: RE: maybe traditional, maybe not, i don't care
About the L's: I would have thought that there should be two L's in Clellan, but to my surprise there was but the one. (Two if you count them both, but only a single L for the second syllable) It must be a Scottish song, having learned from my lovely bride, whose mum was born in ole Scotland, that the Scots are a very frugal folk and would not use two when one would do! NOI!!!
