Shortly after posting here his earlier question about possible

alternate dialects of English, Daniel Goodman posted a song lyric in

such a dialect to a newsgroup I also belong to... and, not

recognizing his name across contexts, I asked if I could post it here

and mail it to the person who had asked about alternate dialects of

English! He said OK; perhaps modesty detained him from doing it in

the first place, or maybe he felt it was too far off-topic here.

Well, here it is. I like it, and I'm working on pronunciations

evolved from Middle English to sing it with.
