Row In A Public House

"Row In A Public House", a song preserved in a scrapbook entitled Old Glasgow Street Songs etc, 1850 which is held at the Mitchell Library.

This comic song is about two drunks arguing and insulting each other in a pub, "slitterin', splutterin', stammerin', stutter." The row is rooted in a disagreement over who is "on the bell" and appears to be resolved when the two "sponges" agree to pay for their own drinks.
