Villikins And His Dinah (You'll know the tune, even if you don't know it by this name) must have been used for hundreds of serious and comic songs.

And crowds at British football matches (or soccer to our colonial cousins)are adept at adapting Blue Moon and Guantanamera, if sporting chants count. At the one I was at on Saturday, our team went 3-0 up, and our fans sang to theirs, to the tune of Blue Moon, "Go home, you might as well go home." Then we went 4-0 up. When the opposition got a goal back, their fans sang, with good humour, and also to Blue Moon, "Four more, we only need four more."
