#1: [I] Name that song^Het

Posted on 2006-07-21 22:49:43 by Arthur Hagen

In the spirit of naming songs, here's a riddle for the good folks:

'Twas in the famous town of Windsor, on a fine summer morn,
two game wardens, seven hunters and a cow.
The bellman perceived that their spirits were low,
and next by the hair into hall was borne.

There's also an enigma here.

Regards,

I don't know about the rest of the text but I know this line occurs in
the song "The Hunting Song" by Tom Lehrer but since the rest isn't there
I doubt that would be correct...

You've named one of the four. I suspected that one would go first :-)

Half a point only -- you didn't mention the poet (not that I think there's
any doubt, but...)
Two down, two to go, plus the enigma.

The two lines I recognised have already been IDed. Ah, well.

&quot;The problem with defending the purity of the English language is that
English is about as pure as a cribhouse whore. We don't just borrow
words; on occasion, English has pursued other languages down alleyways
to beat them unconscious and rifle their pockets for new vocabulary.&quot;

No, more like an Elgar style enigma.

Good grief. I didn't think Charles Dodgson needed identification.

&gt; Two down, two to go, plus the enigma.

Well, both so far have involved hunting.

I recognise this bit - it's from a Tom Lehrer song that may or may not
be called 'The Glorious Twelfth' (My TL CD isn't to hand at the
moment)

So... each line is from a different song (the equivilent of
the friends, I guess), but there's a hidden &quot;deeper&quot; puzzle as
well, right?
