Peaceful Fridays.....


Time for the Maryland Renn Faire!
We'll be gearing up to play lively tunes and sing bawdy songs this weekend.

How about the old favorites "Me Husbands Got No Courage in Him"  or  "Cuckoo's Nest?"

Me Husband is a song about a poor lass who's been married for seven long years and woefully she still has her maiden head.  In the end she wishes her husband was dead and that she could find another one.  This song is a real crowd pleaser with the ladies.

Cuckoo's Nest finds a young lad strolling about the fields and meets a young lass with whom he is immediately taken with and then makes his intentions quite known.  The maiden holds true to her values and makes the young man wait until they are wed.  But, the funny line with this song is what he tells her - "oh, some like a girl who is pretty in the face and some like a girl who is slender in the waist, but, give me a girl who will wiggle and will twist - at the bottom of the belly lies the cuckoo's nest."  The gents tend to like this song.  I guess it's quite plain why.

We love to sing a bawdy song then follow it up with a lively tune.  Gets folks moving.

So, what will move you this weekend?  Hmmmm.....

Have a peaceful, moving (wiggling) weekend, y'all..........
