Subject: RE: Epithet for English Immigrants in Song?
Q - thanks for the comments re: John Harrops Bridge. I reread it last night and think it could do with some refinment - but I enjnoyed it too!

I wonder if Jick or Jickie is a real word in Portuguese or a slang - if it's slang, was developed strictly for use in Bristol County, Massachusetts - or does it predate that era?

I feel a song coming on.
