I knew the melody was traditional, but didn't know the original source. Thanks for the reference. As to the lyrics, I will check out Martin then. We are filking the lyrics, so we likely have to homage the lyricist.

At what point of satirizing does the work become yours. Does Weird Al have to pay rights to the original lyrcists? Curious as to what the brain trust here knows.
