GerryM Bernie sings Wellerman! (8) RE: Bernie sings Wellerman! 24 Jan 21

Mrrzy, "tonguing" was the processing of the whale after one was caught and brought to shore.

I read somewhere (maybe somewhere on Mudcat) that there were lots of songs about sailors killing whales, and lots of songs about whales killing sailors, but Wellerman may be the only one that ends in a draw.
