Old Brown's Daughter

One of the tunes I often sing to put Trinhity to sleep is an old Newfoundland song called "Old Brown's Daughter" that I discovered courtesy of Great Big Sea. Tonight she sang it with me, which was terribly sweet. It also revealed an alternate take on some key lyrics....
Original lyric: "I wish I was a Lord Mayor, Marquis, or an Earl..."
Trinh's lyric: "I wish I was a Lord Mayor, a Monkey or an Earl..."

Original lyric: "And when I make a purchase and she hands me the change, that girl she makes me pulverised, I feel so very strange..."
Trinh's lyric: "And when I make a purchase and she hands me the change, that girl she makes me pulverised, I smell so very strange..."
Love it. I just love it.
