'I very much doubt any relation to 'Lord of Misrule' customs; the song isn't old enough for that. '
The same could be said of the modern-day pantomime, but the link (with Lords of Misrule)is generally accepted.
Are we to assume that songs (and/or the themes they contain) are only as old as the oldest extant text?
