Happy Birthday!


birth of
Edward VII (1901-1910)
(d. May 6, 1910)

        When I was young I used to be,
        As fine a man as ever you'd see,
        The Prince of Wales, he said to me,
        "Come and join the British army."

                They're looking for monkeys up in the zoo,
                And if I had a face like you,
                I'd join the British army.

                "Join the British Army," per Ewan MacColl on Bless 'Em All (British Army
                Songs), Riverside, who says this is a Victorian era song, with additional
                verses from Brenden Behan. Also, of course, sung by the Dubliners & others.

2005: 11/9 to 11/14: A festival in Edinburgh to celebrate Great Hamish. I understand he has been busted at Sandy Bell's. Seems fitting.   (See "Carrying Stream Festival" and 11/11)

Mary Travers was born 11/9/1936
