Black belt caterpillar wrestler why do some sing in usa accent (64* d) RE: why do some sing in usa accent 11 Nov 18

It seems that some songs I automatically sing in an accent, such as "The Bundling Song" which lends me a slight Irish sound, which seems relevant to its mention of Guinness and Irish surnames, although I have heard that the practice was common in Wales as well.
I have problems with songs with lowland Scottish words as they just don't sound right whatever I do with them.
I shouldn't have a problem with aint as I was brought up in Somerset which relies on aint, baint and taint for nearly every sentence, but it's not the way I talk all the same.
