CHRISTMAS TRADITIONS.......

Posted: Today at 11:52

Most songs in our house were vaguely bawdy and only embarked upon when the older generation had imbibed enough tonic wine or Newcastle Brown.

One favourite was Keep Your Feet Still Geordie Hinny. It still makes me laugh when I hear it.

A small correction: The song is called On Ilkley Moor Bar t'at.  In standard English it means On Ilkley Moor without your hat. 

I thought you were going to say that the rest was unrepeatable, rather than unprintable, but in this case unrepeatable would be very wrong as it depends on much repeating.

The message that the song attempts to send is that if you go onto the moor without your hat you will catch your death of cold. As a result, you will be buried, the worms eat you up, the ducks will eat the worms, we will eat the ducks and, finally, we shall have partaken of you. So put your hat on.

Just thought I would clear that up.
