When I was a kid, my grandmother loved (I mean, looooved) Bing Crosby. She
thought that a curse word would never pass his lips.
Someone got a hold of a flexible record (this was in the days of 78's) and
gave it to her as a present, of what was supposed to be an outtake that
someone smuggled out of the recording studio. Who knows, it could have been
done on purpose as a gag.
Anyway, the song was "Wrap Your Troubles In Dreams." During the song, Bing
sings "They left out 8 bars the dirty bastards."
My grandmother, who was very religious, was very disappointed in Bing.
has anyone else ever heard this version?
