Subject: RE: p stands for paddy
"The House Carpenter" is by Laurence Price, Feb., 1657 (ZN2466 in my broadside index), and has nothing to do with "T stands for Thomas", unless someone go their songs mixed up. The earliest copy of the latter that I can find is a version collected in 1907 and published in JFSS #19, p. 174, 1915.
