The Sound Archie's Land Rover.

My sweetheart is, I warrant
One of the smartest girls;
She can spin silk
And write her own name
With an M and an A and a G and an I
And a Double U for 'William'.

SFNHM Tape 610. Collected 20.9.63 in the Gwaun Valley, near Fishguard, Pembrokeshire.


Notes

A lover's rollicking boast of his sweetheart's ladylike accomplishments.
