I am increasingly becoming convinced I had an idyllic childhood :-) Despite,

I grew up on this song, as sung by the Irish Rovers. My father used to sing
it to us, too. The Irish Rovers came to Brisbane a few months ago and I
went. 500 senior citizens singing "Drunken Sailor", and me. It was such a
great night. I was born 30 years  too late for my musical tastes.
