Sounds like Futwick is having a bad day, as evidenced by his/her posts here and in other threads.
Please note that very few registered Mudcatters have posted to this thread. I did post a few versions above from printed sources, but I would not sing this song to an audience unless I were doing a seminar on racist songs. Note what I posted above:
