Subject: RE: Home, boys, home by The Dubliners
I think Mudguard's line "she tended to my knees"is a classic and should on no account be "corrected". And I think the often performed version of the last line of the penultimate verse is worth consdering:
"And he can climb the rigging like his daddy climbed up you"
