Love it or hate it, the words and "TUNE" are in that loved, or detested book, Rise Up Singing.
We always sang this song under the premise that the "goose" in question was the early English term for a Lady of loose morals. It is interpreted this way in other folk songs. IE Cam Ye O'er From France,
"riding on a Goosie"
