Thread Name: Welsh Drinking Songs
Subject: RE: Welsh Drinking Songs
I suggest that y'all not sing cheap drinking words to 'Cwm Rhondda'. This is an important tune to many Welsh people. It carries emotional, religious and national meaning.
Imagine how you would feel if you heard foreigners singing cheap, insolent words to 'Motherless Child,' 'Silent Night' or 'Lift Every Voice.'
On a positive note, see if you can find the Welsh dance tunes 'The Wheatsheaf' or 'Ty Coch' (Red House), which refer to pubs.
