I've never heard them set to music, but Andy G.'s last verse reminds me of the Little Willie poems.
Little Willie, mean as hell,
Threw his sister down the well.
His mother said, while drawing water,
"My, it's hard to raise a daughter."
Willie, in his thirst for gore,
Nailed his brother to the door;
His father said, with humor quaint,
"Willie, don't. You'll spoil the paint."
Willie found some dynamite.
Didn't understant it, quite.
Curiosity never pays;
It rained Willie seven days.
There are other verses, but I've forgotten them. Maybe Joe or one of the other old-timers *grin* can come up with some more.
