When I was around two or three years old, which would be 1950 I apparently sang the Wild Colonial Boy in the Gaelic. At this time my father was a keeper on the Mull Of Kintyre lighthouse in Scotland. I was told I was taught it by another keeper who spoke the language as his native tongue and English as his second.
Strange because i was born in Liverpool and can't remember a word of it.
Point being that the song was sung in the gaelic. Okay, modern gaelic it may have been but it was.
