I get a 404 on that one, JonL.
I'm presuming all of these songs are influenced by 'My Bonnie'. I'd be interested to know if the 'My Bonnie' tune was earlier than the student parody of 'Barney'.
I'd also be interested to know if there was a website that attempted to list all of the well-known, much-used tunes like 'My Bonnie' along with the songs that use them. I could fill a book with 'Derry Downs'
