This reminds me of the Weavers' song-- not sure of the title but the first
line is "We sailed on the ship John D."  --they sing "I feel so break-up, I
wanna go home"   When I heard the Beach Boys version not so long ago they changed
it to "I feel so broke up" which makes more sense to me-- almost in the sense
we're talking about in "stove up"-- can anyone enlighten me on "feel so
break-up?"  why break and not broke?
