Thread Name: Soldier Bible Card Deck Song
Subject: RE: Soldier Bible Card Deck Song
Without dates for the Frost/Cleese and the ISIRTA episode, I couldn't say which borrowed. That said, Cleese was a member of both teams. He could easily have been the writer of the item and as such, perfectly entitled to use it as often as needed.
My favourite rhyme from ISIRTA was in the play about Robin Hood in a verse which ended
"And she was mistress of her art,
Willikins, Wallikins, Rhubarb tart"
