I'm from Halifax but the first time I heard this song was at Deal Folk Club in Kent. The mc in the 90's was Alan Sugden from Bradford (or Bratford as they call it). Alan sang this regularly and with much gusto - he was especially good at the drunken last verse! Since his untimely death a few years ago, I've never heard this song again. There is another strange link here - I was taught German in Bradford by Heather Bradley of Swan Arcade!
