Subject: RE: glory hallelujah hi ro jerum
The way I first heard it was a little different. The story line was the same but the chorus and refrain was made a little easier for people to sing along to. Still doesn't make sense but at least the words are real(ish) ;-)

Hey Roger Rum, Hey Roger Rum
Skin of a Spanish Onion
Oh, what a funny 'un
Glory Hallelujah, Hey Roger Rum

There was also an additional first verse -

There were two Jews who both came from Jerusalem
Glory Hallelujah, Hey Roger Rum
One was rich while the other he was poorium
Glory Hallelujah, Hey Roger Rum
