Thread Name: Origin: Donald Where's Your Trousers / ...Troosers
Subject: RE: Donald Where's Your Trousers

I believe that at one of the early National Folk Festivals at Loughborough Bert was asked where he got the tune for Jack Orion. He replied that it's "Donald wheres....etc", so I guess that DWYT came first of those two.

I was almost certainly there, as I rarely missed Bert's talks, but I can't recall hearing the quote but have been told by others.
