Havah Nagilah

Israeli citizens may be somewhat surprised to learn that their beloved traditional "Havah Nagilah" should be regarded as a "pub song" by those irreverent beer-swilling British louts. If they are dismayed they should perhaps remember the above named types and their ilk are fair-minded and are equally irreverent to all manner of songs. Hymn tunes are especially sought out as vehicles of sometimes the worst depravity. The version I sing comes from Busking for Special Occaisions.
