Re: "As I Was A-going to Banbury", I always thought that the last verse was:

One of the Salmon as big as an elk.

However, I see from the version of this song in the database, and from the earlier quoted "A Shoulder of Mutton Jumped over from France", that it's probably "an elf". Is it just my bad hearing, or does any body else think they've heard an "elk" version of one of these songs?
