The Pompous Trousers

Don't you think they were dangerous?
When I put them on
People thought there was no one in them
'Til they heard talking and said, "Aw"
~A' Bhriogais Uallach (The Pompous Trousers)

I don't understand Scottish Gaelic, but I like it all the same. This is a bit of a tall tale about trousers that were so big you could make two or three pairs of pants out of them.

Battlefield Band! One of my favorite groups and memories. I saw them probably 10 years before this recording when I lived in NM. There was a dance floor set up next to the stage where I danced with a joyful one year old in my arms. Thank you. :)

That was great. The bagpiper was fantastic...have never heard that instrument played with such gusto!

Thanks, Tabatha
