Welsh Ditty

There is a tavern in the town       [F ]

But no one knows its name       [Apsley ]

We're fairly sure that it's a noun       [F ]

Recalling ancient fame       [Beefy ]

Dispensing with the Mother Tongue       [Achim ]

In favour of Old Norse       [Apsley ]

Means all the ballads we once sung       [F ]

Sound guttural and coarse       [Roland ]

(Unless you're Norse, of course!)       [Apsley ]

Contributors: F, Apsley, Beefy, Achim, Roland.
