Subject: RE: drinking song, translation
I'm not sure about putting "morning" next to "dawning", Wilfred. The trouble is, some English speakers rhyme those words exactly; some pronounce them quite differently(me, for example, I was brought up in the southwest); and a lot pronounce them very close together, but with a slight difference. Which I think makes it an odd phrase to sing(I've been trying). I would suggest getting rid of either morning or dawning.
