This mainly Norfolk entry gives you an idea of the recordings made, and of those Jon again refers to Peter Bellamy as his source, as does Martin Carthy. The Mainly Norfolk link is especially appropriate as English variants of this song seems to have been found exclusively in that region. Any further evidence will be appreciated.

I hope no-one describes this one as grim! We used the Roud number to cross reference against different titles for the song. When searched on Roud No. Other versions are recorded as The Bush of Australia.
Loved it……………. I could listen to this performance again and again just for the exhuberance of hearing Jon throwing his head back in the middle of the woods and hitting those high notes in the second to last line of each verse. I was there too, and still giggle to myself every now and then when it pops into my mind.
Thank you for putting this one on. I was convinced that the reference to the bush of Australia oo-er was a Revival addition, but no — that line is there in the copy in the Bodleian collectionwhich dates from some time between and Smutty Victorians!
Mind you, looked at another way that line of thinking goes back to John Donne — O my America! My New-Found-Land! How language and the meanings of words change over the years……. I think this would have gone down well in the Music Hall shows of yesteryear — a rather cheeky little ditty.
Jon seemed to enjoy singing it as well. I enjoyed listening to him. Harry Cox I believe! Blimey Ray…. Linda and I have been ploughing a lonely furrow for a couple of years now! Name required. Mail will Introduction To The Patients - DDV - A Sound Atlas Of Venereology be published required.
