    It's a bit much though isn't it? By the end you've got fifty mostly noisy people being crapped on by twenty three assorted fowl. I assume the five rings are so you can make a knuckleduster to shut them all up. And what bleedin use is a pear tree in winter?

    What the hell's a collie bird anyway? A flying sheepdog?
    Strange you should say that. I'd always sung "four collie birds" as a kid, and assumed we just sang it wrong and it should be "four calling birds". However, there was a programme on BBC called "Lucy Worsley's Christmas Carol Odyssey", which was most interesting. One of the items was an original manuscript of the lyrics, which did indeed say "four collie birds". It was apparently a Midlands term meaning "black", the "collie" being a dialect word for "coal". Hence "four blackbirds".

    Short version for Lord P: it means four blackbirds. Probably. And no, I didn't Google it, I BBC-ed it.

    I had already posted that.

    Do try to keep up, Chris.

    “colly birds” or “collie birds,” which is the archaic term for blackbirds.

    Although both “calling” and “colly” have appeared in versions of the song, “colly,” which is derived from the Old English word for coal, predates “calling” by more than a century ....and the reference is to the color of the bird, not its voice. ...

    I went to my local Grocery Store to get a few things and discovered they had Removed their Xmas Window Painting.

    So that indicates that Xmas is Definitely Over and I say Shut This Forum Down!

    Yes, because everybody, in the whole world, decides when Christmas is over based on the goings on in your local grocery store.

    Yer fuckin' dick.

    All the Xmas Trees are gone.

    All the Xmas Decorations have disappeared.

    And there is even a Radio Commercial stating that the Xmas Season is Over and it is time to get a Pay Day Loan to help pay off the Xmas Bills.


    So I am for shutting this Forum down until next December.
