Was nothing more than God had graced him with upon his birth

Irlanda es un país hermano, México tiene muchas afinidades con aquel país. Peleoneros y bebedores, chingados por una potencia anglo-parlante, a diferencia de la mayoría de los paises del norte de su continente ellos son muy animados y prefieren salir a tomarse unos tragos antes de trabajar todo el día. Su música es excelente y he tenido la oportunidad de conocer a muchos amantes de su cultura al igual que alguno que otro de ellos. Saben canciones, para cantar en las tabernas, les gusta mucho la música, esta es una muy buena. Si pueden escuchar la canción al tiempo que leen la letra ¡su sentido del humor se los agradecerá! Bye


The Scotsman

Well a Scotsman clad in kilt left a bar on evening fair
And one could tell by how we walked that he drunk more than his share
He fumbled round until he could no longer keep his feet
Then he stumbled off into the grass to sleep beside the street
Ring ding diddle diddle I de oh ring di diddly I oh
He stumbled off into the grass to sleep beside the street

About that time two young and lovely girls just happend by
And one says to the other with a twinkle in her eye
See yon sleeping Scotsman so strong and handsome built
I wonder if it's true what they don't wear beneath the kilt
Ring ding diddle diddle I de oh ring di diddly I oh
I wonder if it's true what they don't wear beneath the kilt

They crept up on that sleeping Scotsman quiet as could be
Lifted up his kilt about an inch so they could see
And there behold, for them to see, beneath his Scottish skirt
Was nothing more than God had graced him with upon his birth
Ring ding diddle diddle I de oh ring di diddly I oh
Was nothing more than God had graced him with upon his birth

They marveled for a moment, then one said we must be gone
Let's leave a present for our friend, before we move along
As a gift they left a blue silk ribbon, tied into a bow
Around the bonnie star, the Scots kilt did lift and show
Ring ding diddle diddle I de oh ring di diddly I oh
Around the bonnie star, the Scots kilt did lift and show

Now the Scotsman woke to nature's call and stumbled towards a tree
Behind a bush, he lift his kilt and gawks at what he sees
And in a startled voice he says to what's before his eyes.
O lad I don't know where you been but I see you won first prize
Ring ding diddle diddle I de oh ring di diddly I oh
O lad I don't know where you been but I see you won first prize

Buenísimo!!! ja ja ja no me paro de reir... no encontré la versión que pusiste, tuve que escuchar una que decía "bob and tom"... Pero muy buena.
(me acabo de dar cuenta de algo... acá ese tipo de humor simpre se relaciona con los gallegos... hay muuuchos chistes con gallegos... pero supongo que también allá)
