I sang this at school in Yorkshire - fifty years ago - and our pianist used to take it at quite a lick, non of the doleful dirges sometimes heard.

It was quite easy to sing the second verse because the music had a 'bom bom' between verses, filled in between first and second verses but not subsequently.
