Subject: RE: song info: Jolly Rogues of Lynn
Well, here's something I noticed; the tune to this song strongly resembles something I remember from when I was a child called "The Grand Old Duke of York". Is this deliberate (a sly way of saying that Duke was a rogue) or merely coincidence? I'd dearly like to know!
