Subject: RE: Lyrics/Tune Req: Humpin the Drum
G'day again John,

That's from a Steamshuttle (eponymous ... ?) LP in the 1970s (basically a group around Graham Seal ... now Professor of Folklore at Curtin, West Australia). Graham sings what I suspect is something he constructed from material including traditional toasts (... and curses ... ?). (Come to think of it ... it may be on the Larrikin Records LP On the Steps of the Dole Office Door ...)

I'll see what I dig up at home. (This one raised my interest in some traditional toasts ... that I hope Graham could elucidate ... but no ... )
