Subject: RE: Origins: Down by the Banks of the Hanky Panky
Thanks for posting demographical information and performance instructions with your example. I can't recall ever reading an example of "...Hanky Panky" that included lines from "Not Last Night But The Night Before" [24 robbers at my door/I got up to let them in/hit 'em in the head/with a rolling pin}.
It's interesting to see how a specific rhyme changes from place to place, isn't it?
You be well also!
