Snow on the roof, Fire in the furnace

Gadaya at Times ain't like they used to be tells us:
" ... Recorded at the end of the 1970's, produced by two young folk musicians (Malcom Dalglish and Grey Larsen) and issued by June Appal Recordings, "Snow on the roof, fire in the furnace" (love that title...) is a very enjoyable journey through folk and popular music. Here you'll hear a brass band playing marches, a black piano player talk and play some fine Blues, a wonderful fiddler, a old tenor banjo player singing German songs and old pop tunes, a superb Oud player originally from Lebanon, and a accordeon player doing Irish tunes. All this vernacular and ethnic music represents the diverse immigrants who settled in the Cincinnati Area and the musical traditions they brought with them. ..."

Oh good lord! I can't tell you how many times I heard "Fire on the roof," (oh ... I can't finish it) during my many trips to Germany. Everyone thinks it's funny to say things to redheads, no matter what the language.

Germans ... In Sweden we only make fun of bald, big titted girls driving tractors without any clothes on. But, geez, we sure say some funny things to them!
