Subject: RE: BJ- Lyr Req: be a barrow boy
The Liverpool Barrow Boy by the Spinners is a different song, to the Irish tune "Rakes of Mallow". Chorus goes:

Pushin' and shovin' all the day
Soon as I find a place to stay
Up comes a scuffer, I'm on my way
Move yer bleedin' barrer

[Scuffer = policeman]

WassaiL! V
