They simply can't get enough of "Dabbling in the Dew", "The Saucy Sailor" and "Gently, Johnny, my Jingalo"...
That Rambling Syd Rumpo gets in everywhere, don't he?!

These tantalising tit-bits are all contained in Sharp's English Folk Songs (1919) - I kid ye not...

...I must read about what (probably dismal and ignominious) fate befell young "Fanny Blair".
