Thanks, Joe. I learned the song from a YouTube video with Scot Wiseman, the composer, and Lulu Belle. I don't think you can beat that for accuracy. The same lines have been posted here by Gene, above, in 1999.

I prepared the sheet music, and I don't think I've ever seen that many incidentals in a traditional song before. I've transposed it to G to suit my voice, and the finished song includes F#, F, D, D#, A and A# in it.

Oh. I did make one change. The original did not go "nya nya nya nya NYA nyaaa" in the third verse.
