Thread Name: Lyr ADD: Messing About on the River
Subject: RE: messing about on the river
Jim, I haven't heard the song in years, but as I recall it, the version Ewan McV posted (4 yrs ago!) is much closer than yours to what Josh Macrae recorded.

Ewan has a blank in Verse3 line2, but I don't recall "Capstans and quays where you tie up with ease".

Does anyone have a copy of the recording or the original text?

WassaiL! V
