Lads a while ago I wrote up a shanty for @Smaug_Niphredil after he did something I dont remember really, @SushiKarasumori told me to share it to everyone... Smaug enjoyy!


Come ye lads listen to me

I’ll tell ye ‘tale ‘bout the beast who was free;



Oh, his name was Smaug

He was our watchdog

Ye would not mess with thy beast

The monster came from thy east

O, he punished all in the way

Now that’s the way that Smaug would play



Aye, ye couldn’t escape his hold

While he was ‘round non ‘ould fold

Hiding in thy shadows

He always ‘rose

From the depths of thy void

He’d make ye paranoid



Who ‘ould be so bold?

As to step before Smaug the old

Hed make ye shiver

And dive in thy river

As he would say

“Ye rule breakers are me prey”



Aye, there be no escape

Ye must face the guardian on thy landscape

Ye shall not pass unless said so

O, that is why ye should watch thy shadow

Archaic 'the' and modern 'your' is not the same as modern 'the' and 'thee' being the same. I'm very passionate about Middle English, you see

I know the difference between thee and the, but the statement "your/thy average fox is clever" is the same as "the average fox is clever"

nah I think we're okay now.

On another note - it turns out I didn't get space to record last night so I'll try to do it Sunday

It's kind of funny what your arguing about as "us danes" used to have a lot similar language to yours back then. At least in the way we phrased our sentences.
We do have the "thy" ("hin") which acts exactly how Fries descibes it. And we have the "thee" ("thi") though that one behaves a bit differently

maybe we should stop the discussion on archaic english/danish
