NOTES: GreigDuncan3: "The two fragments on this theme are given together here but it should be noted that, although they may be parts of the same song, it is not possible to be certain of this on the present evidence."
The following songs are all one or two verses or fragments with a verse beginning "[so-and-so he/she] was there": "Mary Glennie," "Jean Dalgarno," "The Singing Class" and "The Auchnairy Ball." Should two or more be considered the same song? - BS
This is possible, of course, but I suspect this is a separate humorous song, with the title genuinely describing the contents: A singing class, with "Bangor" being an error for "renor." I'm not sure what Mary Jamieson was singing, though. - RBW
