Girls of Ulan, The

DESCRIPTION: "The girls from Ulan need no schoolin' For blucher boots are all the go. And how their hobnail boots they rattle On that hard and slippery floor, Like a mob of Queensland cattle On the rush at four...."

NOTES: It's not entirely clear whether these two songs are the same -- particularly since both are fragmentary. The first insults the Ulan girls, and has no tune; the second praises them. One may be a parody, or they may be complimentary fragments. For the moment, pending fuller versions, I'm lumping them together on the principle that they're about the same subject. - RBW
