Hi guys, an old uncle used to talk of a song he heard in the desert during WW2. It was about the Sweetwater Canal, and what would happen to you if you fell into it. Any leads would be great.
Thanks.

The Sweetwater ran/runs parallel to the Suez, and was an open cesspool. Yet Arab kids used to swim in it, and were apparently unscathed. Just shows that this pasteurised age, isn't all it's cracked up to be.

Hi John McKenzie, you're right, the Uncle reckoned it was filthy. The song described all the diseases you would end up with if you fell in.
