Hi all
My little girl had the ''Taffy'' nursery rhyme on one of her videos.
This is how it goes
Taffy was a Welshman,
Taffy was a thief;
Taffy came to my house
And stole a piece of beef.

I went to Taffy's house,
Taffy was not home;
Taffy came to my house
And stole a mutton bone.

I went to Taffy's house,
Taffy was not in;
Taffy came to my house
And stole a silver pin.

I went to Taffy's house,
Taffy was in bed;
I took up a poker
And threw it at his head.

I hate the rhyme myself but the narrator of this particular rhyme has a Welsh accent so Im wondering if it is supposed to be offensive to the Welsh??
