English Jon Lyr Req: She Moved through the Fair: Gaelic (38) RE: She moved through the fair:Gaelic 22 Mar 09


How about a Pensylvania Dutch translation? Or Urdu? or Swahili? I may be missing the point here, but what's wrong with singing it in English? All we're doing here is opening the floodgate for requests of material translated into the language of an incongruous culture.

How about a Welsh version of "Knees up Mother Brown" or "Anarchy in the UK" in medieval Portuguese?

Just a thought...
