The title of this blog comes from a Gaelic expression -"putting on the poor mouth"-which means to exaggerate the direness of one's situation in order to gain time or favour from creditors.

do you think music videos have gotten less WEIRD over the years? What's with Peter a catsuit?"Jeux sans FRONT-ières!" Later I thought it was "She's so POP-ular!"
Excellent. I love mishearings like this!

I saw him in concert in the early 80s. Very disappointing I'm sorry to say......I do love misheard lyrics, there are so many entertaining ones :-)
It is isn't it ClaudeAh well JamesIt could be worse you could have Justin Beiber running through your head Maddy!That is a shame. Never saw him live and after the mid 80s I went off his work
I saw him live a few years ago and found him great. He sang Solsbury Hill riding a bike!Great blog, by the way. But then, it would be, given the inspiration from Myles ... :-)
THanks Francis. Glad you like the Poor Mouth. Like Mr Jeating I am a worshipper of Mr O Nolan!
