    Unknown word

    Hi,

    I am a french student (please excuse my english writing) and I was listening to M Paul Mccartney song : Heather.

    I searched for the lyrics, which are :

    I'm gonna fly to the moon
    Check in outta space
    Find me a suitable plot
    Build myself a place
    There I will stay
    For a year and a day
    Until the cares of my life blow away
    And I will dance to a runcible tune
    With the queen of my heart

    and I don't know the word runcible. I asked to a couple of british friends who were unable to help me, and I couldn't find it on the internet.

    I was wondering if you could help me to understand that word?

    thank you very much for any help you will provide me.

    Boris.

    According to this site ( http://www.kokogiak.com/logolepsy/ow_r.html#runcible ), it means sensuous.
