Liner Notes: 

If you're up on your Victorian euphemisms, you'll get this. Even if you're not, your imagination should do the trick.
Not sure who'd perform this song, but if anyone wants to try, help yourself.

Lyrics: 

We Ground Our Corn

Verse 1
We lay down in a wheat field
Where nobody could see us
Passion took its wilful course
And so we serviced Venus

Verse 2
Later yet she turned to me
And the fire was once more lit
And so it was we had to
Put the quarters on the spit

Chorus:
On that endless sea of golden grain
We lay all night until the dawn
If we never see that field again
We’ll remember where we ground our corn

Verse 3
The sun rose up in the east
It appeared so full and ripe
So it was that one last time
We played the blanket hornpipe

Chorus:
On that endless sea of golden grain
We lay all night until the dawn
If we never see that field again
We’ll remember where we ground our corn

this is really fine..i hear it as an engllish music hall parody of victorian ballads. id love to hear what tim fatchen wuld do with it. if it hasnt been scooped up by somebone by next week, ill take up the slack and try something..but it wouldnt be nearly as good as what tim would do.

Splendid euphemisms John! I imagine this being sung in a 'husky' voice! Smile

Fun song. I hadn't heard most of these euphemisms before, good to have some more.
