I've heard this song twice at local sings from someone who heard it at the London, Ont. Morris Ale. Does anyone here know this song?

The twentieth century IS almost over...

Most people assume it will be over on January 1, 2000. Actually, since there was no Year Zero, the twentieth Century will be over on January 1, 2001.

If you wanted to be picky since the "Year of Our Lord" 1 would have begun at the birth of Christ and most believe He was born 4 or 5 years previous to the Gregorian Calendar's estimation the Twentieth Century is already history. - Belated Happy New Milennium!

I agree that the 21st Century doesn't start until 1/1/2001, but if you wait until then to celebrate, you'll miss one hell of a party:-)

The millenium debate is further complicated by a disagreement, among biblical scholars, about the time of year when Jesus was actually born. Along these lines, a dear friend of mine takes great delight in singing a "filked" carol which begins with the following lines:

"God rest ye merry gentlemen, let nothing you dismay/ but Jesus Christ your savior was born sometime in May..."

Gabh spòrs,

This song was written by Steve Goodman. (Pete Seeger plays banjo on the recording.)
