Subject: RE: What is a folk song, version 3.0
But if you hear it as, for example, the kind of guy who gets by by selling the Big Issue, and he's talking about other people he has met on the street, it has a different feel to it. The economic and social superiority gets read into it by the listener, because of the way it gets sung and the people singing it. I don't think it's necessarily there in the song.
