Through these bawdy catches and ballads we journey to the taverns and other social gathering-places of the real Merry Old England.   We may be shocked by the directness of these mostly 300 year old texts (especially those on a scatological theme), but we must remember that in the days before indoor plumbing and pooper-scooper laws, everyday life was of an earthier flavor than it is today.
