Bradders, I don't read music too well, but I can pick out the notes on a piano, so here is the best I can do as to the tune of Derby lamb. I have used Capital A for the bass clef a and the tiing of the notes fits the words..if that makes sense.
middle c is the starting point and it goes;
cf f f f f A bflat c c c f
f g g g g g g g f e e d d c
chorus
agf cf gaaagf
fga fg ef dccc dff ef

Brilliant explanation and as far as I understand it, dead right. However, like many other bits of the English language there are exceptions. It is seen as correct to say "I am an historian' even though the 'H' is sounded. Mind you, I often think that this is rooted in academics making a point.

My mate Susi gave me a mug with decorations by Boynton. The legend reads: "WARNING. This mug is the exclusive property of a COLLEGE GRADUATE. Do not borrow or take it. I don't care whom you are."  Quite correct but seldom used and an academic joke. There's another one involving a man speaking on the 'phone: "To whom am I speaking?"(For he had been to night school.)

Cathy, nobody could complain about the literary quality of your posts.  Somebody taught you good English grammar! This goes for almost all the posts on OG. Look at the quality on many other websites and I think you'll see the quality. Says something about the ethos of the site and the contributors.

I was wondering  about how many of us have met politicians , and found them to be  "mealy-mouthed".......

Is there a local alternative ?

P.S. I looked it up , and it has very old roots ... Martin Luther ...etc.

....but he wasn't from our neck of the woods ..eh !

I have never done it Cathy, but it must be a case of "copy & paste".

 Thanks Wendy, so easy :)  Don't know who the author is, I received this in an email.  
  Ah, English... what a wonderful world we inhabit...

An Ode to English Plurals
We'll begin with a box, and the plural is boxes,

But the plural of ox becomes oxen, not oxes.
One fowl is a goose, but two are called geese,

Yet the plural of moose should never be meese.
You may find a lone mouse or a nest full of mice,

Yet the plural of house is houses, not hice.
If the plural of man is always called men,

Why shouldn't the plural of pan be called pen?
If I speak of my foot and show you my feet,

And I give you a boot, would a pair be called a beet?
If one is a tooth and a whole set are teeth,

Why shouldn't the plural of booth be called beeth?
Then one may be that, and three would be those,

Yet hat in the plural would never be hose,

And the plural of cat is cats, not cose.
We speak of a brother and also of brethren,

But though we say mother, we never say methren.

Then the masculine pronouns are he, his and him,

But imagine the feminine: she, shis and shim!
Let's face it - English is a crazy language.
There is no egg in eggplant nor ham in hamburger,

Neither apple nor pine in pineapple.
English muffins weren't invented in England.
We take English for granted, but if we explore its paradoxes,

We find that quicksand can work slowly, boxing rings are square,

And guinea pig is neither from Guinea nor is it a pig.
And why is it that writers write, but fingers don't fing,

Grocers don't groce and hammers don't ham?
Doesn't it seem crazy that you can make amends, but not one amend?
If you have a bunch of odds and ends and get rid of all but one of them, what do you call it?
If teachers taught, didn't preachers praught?
If a vegetarian eats vegetables, what does a humanitarian eat?
Sometimes I think all the folks who grew up speaking English should be committed to an asylum for the verbally insane.
In what other language do people recite at a play, and play at a recital.

We ship by truck but send cargo by ship.

We have noses that run, and feet that smell.

We park in a driveway, and drive on a parkway,

And how can a slim chance and a fat chance be the same,

While a wise man and a wise guy are opposites?
You have to marvel at the unique lunacy of a language

in which your house can burn up as it burns down.

In which you fill in a form by filling it out, and

In which an alarm goes off by going on.
And in closing, if Father is Pop, how come Mother's not Mop??
