Hi all

As you're such a clever lot I was wondering if anyone has heard of or knows the lyrics to a song called "skinny lizzie" about a not so skinny lady sung to the tune of Galway Bay? My Granda used to sing it and I only remember parts of the lyrics...

?????????? the girls at Bangor
Their perfume could be smelt in Donaghadee
But the eau de cologne that came from Skinny Lizzie
Could be smelt away across the Irish Sea

In her bathing costume she looked tricky
??????????
But when she jumped into the pool at Pickie's
The backwash took the bandstand clean away

I think there are at least a couple more verses but this is all i can remember!

thanks! :)

can't help with the lyrics but, the "Picky's" is probably a reference to "Picky Pool" an outdoor swimming / paddling pool at Bangor, last time I was there it was full of pedalo swans.

Bangor is about 20 miles from Belfast, and Donaghadee is just a bit further on

There is a fairly well-known parody version of Galway Bay based largely (very largely, in some respects) on the female anatomy. "Skinny Lizzie" sounds like a Northern localisation of it.
