The Czech song was called Voják which translates as Soldier. I wouldn't call it a lullaby - the first verse translates to

The translation of the three verses:

(1) When I didn't die in the war, I also will not die back home.
(2) When I didn't die on the French meadows, I will not die by my sweetheart.
(3) When I didn't die alongside the Austrians, I will not die with my lords.

Splott Man, it's great to post lyrics you sang to this thread, and thank you very much for that. Be aware, though, that I will eventually move such posts to other places, like Monique's "songs not in English" thread.
If you posted something and can't find it, clicking on your name in any post should bring it up.

Last Night we played Can y Bugail by Geraint Jarman & Meic Stephens (There should be a To Bach/Circumflex over the 'A' in 'Can', but I can't work out the HTML!).
I promised the lyrics for this morning, but I need to delve a bit deeper, so please bear with me.
I have an English translation, but I will wait until I have the Welsh as well before posting.
Thanks for a great evening(UK), we will be back.

Thanks, SPB. I've added the Czech. I went back and forth between "Everyone Calls Me Tarzan" and "Tarzan of the Apes" as I saw each given as the title by various sources, so I've edited to show both as alternatives.

The title in Czech is Slunécko, which is a diminuitive of slunce which translates as Sun. Wasn't too happy with the performance though, I think neres or tiredness got the better of me, and maybe I should do new material firth time round. The other title - according to the Sheet Music is 'Everyone Calls Me Tarzan'.

SPB, thanks! I will edit the list.
Felipa, I was wondering the same thing, but Prof Google tells me that it's done both ways, and Jim Lucas definitely sang it as McCassery.

    In Folk Song in England, A.L. Lloyd has it listed both ways, McCassery and McCafferty - and McCaffery. -Joe O.-

Thanks as ever to Moorley Man for filling me in on the ones that came before I joined. I didn't get a title for Fred Maslan's song, "Sailing to Victoria" is a guess. I'm guessing "Always Belay" and "In Praise of Men" as the names for Jane Nichills' stories. "I May Not Have Long" is a guess for Storm's song. Digital Tradition has six versions of Hieland Laddie, and Tony said the one Joe put in the chat wasn't what he (Tony) was singing. I didn't catch a title for Sadie's poem for The Birthday of Francis J. Child. "Liza Jane" comes in many flavors with varying titles. Corrections, additions, and random wisecracks always welcome.

Here are the lyrics for he song HERMIONE by DANIEL KELLY which I sang on 25 January zoom session. The tune is ROLLING DOWN TO OLD MAUI.
I’m not sure if this is the right place but I see you have one or two song lyrics in this thread. (Should we do a separate thread for new zoom songs? (Or maybe there is already and I didn’t find it!))

HERMIONE by DANIEL KELLY
It's a damn tough life full of toil and strife we Gryffindors undergo,
We don't give a damn when the term is done how many facts we know.
But there is one girl, that we know for sure, will still at her studying be,
We’ll drink butter beer and give a cheer to the girl Hermione.

Yes her name’s Hermione, it is,
Her name’s Hermione,
We will win house cup, when the year is up
Thanks to our Hermione

Once more we fail at the Potions class, wicked recipes Snape has made,
But Hermione read, and with level head, she has brewed the winning grade,
While Crabb and Goyle set their hair on fire, and Malfoy makes a scowl,
When Hermione reads every word she needs, She’ll be outstanding in every owl.

A Ravenclaw some said she’d be, but they couldn’t be more wrong,
Though her mind is sharp, she’s a lion’s heart, and her will is mighty strong,
She is sometimes gruff, like a Hufflepuff, but there’s a sparkle in her eye,
Though her bloods not pure, she will endure and triumph by and by.

Gerry - I learnt my song from the late Monty Parkin as ‘Marks and Spencer’, but on reflection, perhaps it should be ‘Any Title Will Do’.......

Here's my list of songs (no poems this time) that were sung, in order, at the Singaround on 4/5 January 2021. I didn't get a name for Patty Clink's parody of Dylan's My Back Pages. I'm not sure that Bring Me My Dull Old Pants is the right title for Rusty Dobro's take-off on a song from Joseph and the Technicolor Dreamcoat. Corrections, additions, and random wisecracks always welcome. Here you go:

Mormond Braes
Ballad of Jed Clampett
We'll Sing Hallelujah

Happy New Year, Everyone!
Our next Mudcat Worldwide Singaround is Monday, January 4. It starts at 8 PM London time, 3 PM in New York, and noon in Los Angeles. People in the rest of the world are smart and can figure out the time for themselves, but I do know that we're on Tuesday morning in Australia and New Zealand.
Doors open for cocktails and conversation half an hour before, and we start singing on the hour. We sing for about 5 hours, giving everyone the chance to sing two songs.
Hope you can join us.
I emailed the invitation just now, and I'll post it here a couple of hours before the singaround. I change the link every week to try to avoid evil zoombombers.
-Joe-

Wendy, if the email address is correct on your Mudcat registration, you should be on the email list and should have received an email.

for people who didn't get an email, you can join the list by emailing joe@mudcat.org

From an earlier post by Joe Offer:
8 PM London time. That's noon here in California, and 3 PM in New York, and early Tuesday in Australia and New Zealand. I had no idea what time it starts in Israel (Shlomo says it's 10 PM), but we have singers from there, too.
Come join us! We open doors half an hour before the scheduled time, sing for about 5 hours, and then chat until people are done chatting. All in all, it's a wonderful time. Some people just listen - that's OK, too. Hope you can come.
If you'd like to be included on the email list, contact me, joe@mudcat.org


For security reasons, we change the URL/address of the singaround every week, and post the URL here in this thread for only a short time.

re Painted Veil, I believe the phrase w\s first used in a sonnet Lift Not The Painted Veil by Percy Bysshe Shelley. It was later used as a book title by Somerset Maugham, and more recently as a film title. Not sure where Iain heard / read it - I'll ask him!

Freedom Come All Ye   
by Hamish Henderson

        
Roch the wind in the clear day’s dawin
Blaws the cloods heelster-gowdie ower the bay
But there’s mair than a roch wind blawin
Ower the great glen o the world the day.
It’s a thocht that wad gar oor rottens
Aa they rogues that ging gallus fresh and gay
Tak the road and seek ither loanins
Fer their ill ploys tae sport an play


Nae mair will the bonnie callants
Mairch tae war when oor braggarts crousely craw
Nor wee weans fae pit-heid an clachan
Mourn the ships sailin doon the Broomielaw
Broken families in lands we’ve herriet
Will curse Scotland the Brave nae mair, nae mair
Black and white yin till ither mairriet
Maks the vile barracks o their maisters bare


So come aa ye at hame wi Freedom
Never heed whit yon hoodie croaks fer doom
In yer hoose aa the bairns o Adam
Will find breid, barley bree an paintet room
When McLean meets wi his freens in Springburn
Aa they roses an geans will turn tae bloom
An a black boy fae oot Nyanga
Dings the fell gallows o the burghers doon

                                ___________________





FREEDOM COME A’ YE                 by         Hamish Henderson

During the early 1960s the Clyde and Dunoon were the scenes of many demonstrations against the arrival of Site 1, the US Navy’s nuclear base on the Holy Loch.

Hamish Henderson wrote what was to become one of his best known and most beautiful songs ‘Freedom Come A’ Ye, dedicating it    ‘for the Glasgow Peace Marchers, May 1960’
it is sung to Hamish’s adaptation of the pipe tune
‘The Bloody Fields of Flanders’. by Dunoon born Pipe Major John (Jock) McLellan DCM
The words are in Scots, yet the meaning is clear to all, and the song endures
now the ‘Roch wind’ is depicted as sweeping away oppression and war over the whole world.
