Thread Name: Lyr Req: Sheath and Knife
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Sheath and Knife
I love the transcription of Sheath and Knife in the DT (number 2) where the part where he cuts off his penis is translated as 'he gave himself a wonderful si'er.. rather than 'a wound full sore'! I must try to contact someone to get it changed but keep forgetting. It's my favourite mondegreen on the site though, so maybe it should be left.
BTW, that's the version that Ewan MacColl sang. I think it's the best one but that's just me.
