Isn't it wonderful to have a name that isn't commonplace? Introduce yourself to the wonderful singing of Hazel Dickens, Sorcha. Good stuff.

I remember Chez Watts singing this at our song swaps in Portland, Maine years ago. I was sure this was in the DT, but I wanted to see how the thread was going.

Hazel is a fine name.

See you in the Snug.

Brían.

Hazel; there was a lovely lady with a wonderfull voice,called Hazel King, who sang with and later married Derek Serjeant. They were the resident singers at the Assembly Rooms folk club in Surbiton, way back when. Under their instigation I had my only brush with national broadcasting from that club, as I sang on their appearance in Folk on Two [ I think that is what it was called.] The BBC paid me all of £12.50 for that,[ Less than $20 for our friends across the pond.]

And here I thought it was the story of the silver punch ladle, rendered in music. That's the story of the straitlaced woman who goes to visit her adult son, and finds he has a live-in whom he claims is his housekeeper. A few weeks after the visit, the man writes Mom, it was great to see you, but I haven't seen the punch ladle since, did you take it for some reason? And she answers No, dear, but if your "housekeeper" were actually sleeping in her own bed, she'd have found the ladle by now!

I have always thought that there must be another side to his story:

My husband never tires of lying around.
He drinks like a fish, and he sings like a hound.
He eats like a pig and makes love like a troll,
And the day he drops dead, I will fathom the bowl.

From: Jim Dixon

Here is the extra verse that Wolfgang mentioned. The version in the DT doesn't have it:

Copied from http://wwwmcc.murdoch.edu.au/~gillard/watersons/fathom.html

FATHOM THE BOWL

Come all you bold heroes give an ear to me song.
I will sing in the praise of good brandy and rum.
There's a clear crystal fountain near England shall roll.
Give me the punch ladle. I'll fathom the bowl.

[Sung by The Watersons on The Watersons LP, and re-released on their Early Days CD.]

The verse above doesn't seem new to me - it's the first verse I've been singing for years!   And there I was getting all excited about a new verse to one of my fave songs!
