Oh I want to be in that rumba

Just when I think I'm starting to get a handle on British accents and slang I spend some time last night with a Welsh girl! My God! Could not understand a word that came out of her mouth! She was adorable though, lots of laughs. She taught us the most hilarious song, that goes to the tune of "When the Saints Go Marching In"

Oh Fluffy Sheep (Oh Fluffy Sheep)
Are wonderful (Are wonderful)
Oh Fluffy Sheep are wonderful
They're White, Welsh and Fluffy
Oh Fluffy Sheep are wonderful

I like how everyone here likes to sing, people are always singing in my kitchen and it's just so funny.

Oh Ginger Bean, Oh Ginger Bean
You smell like biscuits and underwear
Oh Ginger Bean you drive me crazy
When you smell like underwear

Oh Ginger Bean, Oh Ginger Bean
You smell like biscuits and underwear
Oh Ginger Bean you drive me crazy
When you smell like underwear

You think the Welsh accent is impenetrable....
Just you wait until they actually start speaking native Welsh!

Reminds me of a quote from Red Dwarf (I'm a closet fan, I'm afraid) that goes "Look, maybe we can reason with it. Open communication channels, Lister. Broadcast on all known frequencies, and in all known languages, including Welsh."
