I've a strong memory of Ben Luxon singing the song Jim posted above, in a radio broadcast of a live show when performing as part of "Two Gentlemen Folk" with Bill Crofut. Possibly it was a Folkstage show? I recorded a couple of shows of theirs from WVLV in Cleveland, where the duo were very popular (Bill being a local originally)
It might even be part of some of their shows that have been posted on YouTube. I think he introduced it as 'Victorian' musichall silliness.
