GUEST,Melissa Cucumber Boat / Paper Dollies Song (11) Cucumber Boat / Paper Dollies Song 17 Nov 01

Hi- am looking for help finding info on a song my mother sang to be as a child. I know the tune and the lyrics I know are:

"Oh what fun it is to float
On a green cucumber boat
Paper dollies, ladies, men
Sitting straight as paper dolls can.

When alas, the boast upset
The paper dolls got wet
Quickly homeward they did run
To dry themselves out in the sun."

What I am trying to find out is where this song came from...who wrote this all of it...

any info anyone can give would be greatly appreciated.
