It also appears that Kidson's text (incomplete) is from a broadside. The Vocal Library John Souter, London, 1818, contains both song and sequel. That's a most interesting songbook, with "Bendemer's Stream" and "O nothing in life can sadden us (Dear creatures, we can't do without them) credited to T[homas] Moore.
Also in it are "The Spotted Cow", and "Skewball", "Croppies Lie Down", "Cheasapeakw struck to the Shannon", Shannon and Cheasapeake", "A Frog he would a wooing go, Heigho says Rowley" and a few other folk favourites.
