Subject: Lyr Req: One-eyed Cormorant looking for a Shag!

I am seeking help to find the words and tune for a very humourous song called "The one-eyed Cormorant looking for a Shag".

I heard about this song at Whitby Folk Week this year and was told little bits of it and was told that when others heard this song they ended up with an ache in their sides from so much belly laughing.

Someone mentioned the name of the person who wrote the song but I can't remember it know and sincerely hope that I do not offend the author of this song or anyone else by asking for details of it here on Mudcat.

So hope I am not doing anything inappropriate and that someone can help me.

Many thanks

Chris

And the difference between a Cormorant and a Shag is?



















You won't find a cormorant in Portsmouth on a Saturday night.

It was written by Pete McNab, who lives in Cheddar, and one of the people I've heard sing it is Gideon Barrett, lately of Hanging Johnny, who visited Whitby during Folk Week this year (though only briefly I think). IIRC there's been a previous thread on this, which I'll refresh if I find it.
