Folksongs are your friends

Things I learned from British Folksongs

Note that the English ones make things more difficult by disguising much of the advice in tree metaphors, while the Scots and Irish get stuck right in there with the birth/death/sex/love/tragedy/despair/getting drunk. I'm not sure about the Welsh, but Wales has scared me ever since I read "The Owl Service".
