Subject: Lyr Req: Bawdy Irish song with omitted words
From: GUEST

Hi, I seem to recall there being a bawdy Irish song, where at the end of each stanza the line is supposed to end with a dirty word. Instead, the song abruptly transitions straight into the next stanza, letting the listener simply imagine that word (which is pretty obvious from the rhyme scheme!)

Can anyone tell me what the name / lyrics of this song might be?

There are many songs with that structure. Can you give us one or two of the stanzas?

BTW, please select a user name (it can be just about anything) to use when you're here - any always you the same one. That helps us keep track of who we're talking to.

You possibly mean "Sweet Violets", which is American, not Irish.

Or the Clean Song, in which rhyming words are substituted for the actual word. See Oscar Brand's "Bawdy Songs and Back room Ballads" and "Roll Me Over." There are many other sources.
