Subject: A song my grandmother used to sing
I'm trying to find the title, words and a midi file to a drinking song my gandmother used to sing. It's probably Scottish, English or Irish in origin (fairly obvious, given I already said it's a drinking song).
The lyrics go somethign like this:
.... When in trafalgar square, you'll see me standing there on a pillar, just like Nelson In my top-hat, my tail-coat, my sporin and my kilt I called on Winston Churchhill....
Anybody know this song? Any and all replies will be appreciated.

It works better if you include any words or title, if known, in the title of your thread. I have started another thread here for you to check on responses.

Good luck. Please post to the new thread if you can help out. Thanks,
