Subject: RE: Help with song - The While, Drover ?
Vixen, give us one or more of the Franglais (though I'm not sure, whether my Franglais will suffice for understanding).
here's the start of a German translation of the While, Drover:
Alf Biene, weil Troja
formen hieƔe Ghia..

It shows beautifully how all those names tend to get lost or culturally adapted in a translation which is what makes research on folksongs so difficult.
