GUEST,.gargoyle Songs in various English dialects (22) RE: Songs in various English dialects 04 Aug 19

As a Yank...

I found the singing of the werzel song, "Wer Be The Blackbird He" totally incomprehensible when sung by a Yorkshire lad.

Even more incomprehensible was the castration of piglettes, and the making of Srampy with a rat in the brew.


A bell ringer, Church of England, Isle of Jersey, gave me insight and a fluid translation.
