...an english by Whet-stone...

Is that in "old pitch"? I.e.,
sharp
?
:unsure:

I thought of it as a practice instrument to give someone an edge to hone their skills and then grind out the tunes. :rolleyes:

 

Thanks

Hmmm... It occurs to me that the Popeye song...

Interesting! The Popeye song I'm familiar with goes like this:

I'm Popeye the sailor man,

I live in a garbage can.

I eat all my spinach

And spit out the winnage,

I'm Popeye the sailor man.

Of course I had no idea what "winnage" was when I was a kid but now I'm wondering if it was "windage"?

Any others around that you can think of?

 

RB

I thought it was this....

 

I'm Popeye the Sailor Man

I'm Popeye the Sailor Man

I'm strong to the finich

Cause I eats me spinach

I'm Popeye the Sailor Man

Toot Toot!

 

Maybe the "Toot Toot" was the windage Mr Morse mentioned. B)

 

Edited due to wrong original quote.

I must have grown up on the wrong side of the tracks. I always thought winnage had to do with gambling. If I have $10 and bet five and loose it it's called lossage. If I bet two more and win back three then one of the three is called winnage. (It takes me back up to $6). It's how I learned some math, or maybe a Phliladelphia local thing.

 

Still from the wrong side:

I'm Popeye the sailor man,

I live in a frying pan.

I turned on the gas

and burned off my

self

.

I'm Popeye the sailor man.

 

Thanks

Up in the riggin’

I was playin’ n swiggin’

Quietly so’s not to get caught

If the cap’n had found me

He’d surely have ground me

Drinkin’s not allowed up aloft

 

Thought I was sneaky

But my squeezebox was squeaky

So took another drink instead

Got a bit tipsy :wacko:

Squeezebox went flipsy

Hit the cap’n square on the head :(

 

Now I’m down below

In the ship’s brig ye know

Feelin’ the pain of my ways

The fault is me own

So I’m here all alone

Been sentenced to twenty nine days.

 

When I get out

I’ll be a changed man no doubt

I’ll make my peace with the Lord -_-

Oh I’ll still be drinkin’

But not playin, I’m thinkin’

The Cap’n threw Tina overboard. :angry:

There was an old squeezer from Devon,

Who died and went up to heaven.

And when asked "What do you play?"

He replied "The anglo, all day,

But at night, I sing till eleven!"

An aspiring young poet, name Stan,

Couldn't make the lines on his limmericks, scan,

So he tried both haiku and verse,

But the results were even worse,

So he flushed the lot down the pan.
