Thanks for posting the story, Malcolm D. I have known an American variant of the song that is so truncated that it makes even less sense. Reading Ed Pellow's variant that you linked to did help but your quoted explanation made it even clearer. I've always liked the song as I know it but have been curious what it was "really" about.
