Could you please let me have the text of Gilwell's 1957 'Green and Yellow'?

Whilst I'm here if anyone has any info on the song prior to the 50s it would be very welcome. I think I know who wrote the last verse but the other 2 new verses out of the 6 I would dearly love to know who wrote them. Strangely the nearest Henry my Son versions to the burlesque come from Somerset as collected by Sharp, but he doesn't seem to have published them, preferring versions of Lord Randall.
