Thread Name: Lyr Add: We dinnae want Polaris
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: We dinnae want Polaris
Hi Wolfgang, I did write the song to begin with, probably 8 of the verses you included and it actually made the headlines in the Daily Worker 'We Dinnae Want Polaris'. A couple of corrections, I wrote 'The mayor o' the toon, he wants his hauf o' croon' and in the last verse, the line is: The Clyde says NAW, ye'll hae tae shoot the craw. To shoot the crow in Scottish parlance means to disappear rapidly! Cheers, Jim McLean
