As per the One and Only Dai, plus:

"We harness up our horses and off we do go
We trip o'er the plains, boys, as nimbly as does
And when we all do get there all merry and bold
We see which of us a straight furrow can hold"

after the third verse. I can't remember which book I got this out of.

As for Kate being funereal, well, yes: that's what she does. She takes shanties and turns them into pensive pretty little things. Doesn't mean there not fine versions. Well, not always.
