Wales

Traveling from England to Wales by train, I immediately knew I had crossed the border when all of the towns had English and Welsh names posted, which inspired:

I've got the runs
From that dodgy pie
And I understand
Not one word passing by
They say it's English
But it taxes my brain
Where the towns have two names
Where the towns have two names

I want to feel
Sunlight on my face
But the clouds don't let in
Even a trace
I want to take shelter
From that Welshman with a cane
Where the towns have two names
Where the towns have two names

    When an obvious tourist enters a North Scots bar and they're speaking Scots Gaelic, they switch to English. And when a tourist enters a Welsh bar and they're speaking English, they switch to Welsh.
