Excellent research!

Then there's Tom Lehrer's "Wild Goose" song:

As we go strolling through the park,
Goosing statues in the dark,
If Sherman's horse can take it,
Why can't you?

Not to mention "The Wild Goose Shanty" which runs:

Have you ever seen a wild goose flying o'er the ocean,
Ranzo, Ranzo, way, hey!
They's just like them young girls when they takes a notion,
Ranzo, Ranzo, way, hey!

But I do hope we have identified the song that Guest Peter wanted the lyrics of, if he ever checks back.
