prog on radio4 about sea shanties now

... a roving, a roving, since roving's been my ru-i-in
I'll go no more a roving with you fair maid ...


my excuse - well my Dad taught me this song when I was small ... :lol:
 
Wasn't bad; from a Nation that spent most of its history landlocked. I tried learning Polish many years ago but gave it up. One of those Teflon languages; nothing stuck.
 
I remember Teflon languages when I was at school: English, Maths (symbolic) and in my case FRENCH! :grin: Why learn French when they speak such good English? :wink: :lol:
