I am not particularly fond of, nor happy with, this drift in topic, sorry. I did want to constrict this column of posts to what was mandatory as said in my OP. But as it is in "Fun and play", so to signal, I know of no point in complaining about it.

I'd go so far as to say that singing without a particular consonant is tough. Mr John did not sing:
"It's sad, so sad (so sad), it's a sad, sad situation and it's obviously absurd. It's sad, so sad (so sad) why can't you and I talk it through? Oh it looks to I, that sorry looks as if it's a particularly hard word."

Had John, Paul, Mr Harrison and Ringo said:
"Ain't got nothing but lust, baby, six days a fortnight"
who would know now?

Thinking again, Chas and David did:
"Rabbit, rabbit, rabbit, rabbit ..." culminating with "... yack, yack, rabbit, rabbit, bunny".

But try doing anything in rhyming slang - cocky or what?
