I would say that you ought to be ashamed of yourselves.......but I'm too busy laughing hysterically and trying not to pee in my pants, LOLOLOLOLOL!!!!!!!!!! Does this now qualify you to be called the "Wicked Welshman"?

"Little girls, this seems to say, Never stop upon your way. 
Never trust a stranger-friend; No one knows how it will end. 
As you're pretty, so be wise; Wolves may lurk in every guise. 
Handsome they may be, and kind, Gay, or charming never mind! 
Now, as then, 'tis simple truth... 
Sweetest tongue has sharpest tooth!"

I heard my good friend Catrin ferch Maelgwyn perform a lovely song at
Bordermarch Melees this year.

And many people said it was the Ultimate Cymry and Western song.

But upon reflection I concluded that it was not the Ultimate Cymry and
Western song.

Because it had nothing in it about:

Drinking mead
Or your liege-lord
Or fighting the Saxons
Or the size of your retinue
Or the Hounds of Annwn

So after due consideration I decided to rectify these omissions.

And with the addition of this final verse, I believe that it is now, indeed,
the Ultimate Cymry and Western song:

I'uz drinkin' mead
The day my liege-lord
Took on the Saxons,
So I went
To meet with him
At the front;
But before I could get
To the battle
With my re-ti-nue,
He got swept up
By the Wild Hunt...

So I'll stand around as long as you will let me,
And I never minded singin' in the rain:
No you don't have to call me Cadfan ap Morgan
Y'never even called me by my naaaaaammmme!
