    Should that be "bugler" or "burglar"?

    Pity, my imagination was running riot about what a bugler might do for an old maid ..........

    Sam McGee did a version under the title 'Burglar Bold'. I reckon it differs sufficiently from that in the DT as to justify posting:

    BURGLAR BOLD

    I'll sing you a song of a burglar man
    Who went to rob a house
    He sneaked right in the window
    As quiet as a mouse

    He was thinking of all the money in hell
    While under the bed he lay
    At nine o'clock he saw a sight
    It made his hair turn grey
    Lord, lord, oh lordy

    At nine o'clock an old maid came in
    I am so tired she said
    She thought everything was all right
    And forgot to look under the bed

    She took out her teeth and her big glass eye
    And the hair from the top of her head
    That burglar had nineteen fits
    As he peeped from under the bed
    Lord, lord, oh lordy

    The burglar crept from under the bed
    He was a total wreck
    The old maid was on to him
    And grabbed him around the neck

    She didn't holler nor scream at all
    But stood as meek as a lamb
    'Oh lord, my prayers are answered
    For now I've found a man'
    Lord, lord, oh lordy

    She took a revolver from the drawer
    And to that burglar said
    'Young man if you don't marry me
    I'll blow off the top of your head'

    The burglar looked for a place to 'scape
    But he found no way for to scoot
    He looked at her big glass eye, said
    'For God's sake go on and shoot'

    I sent the lyrics to the requestor, and got a nice note of thanks.
    Thanks, Stewie.

    You also corrected the spelling in the thread title, Joe, which makes my posts rather nonsensical, so while you're in editing mode, perhaps you could edit them out, including this one.
