Oooh, and look what Google's dug up, though I still don't know what the tune
is (warning, it's quite a smutty little drinking song):

Oh, I got an Aunty Sissy,
And she's only got one titty,
But it's very long and pointed,
And the nipple's double jointed.

Chorus
Did you ever see,
Did you ever see,
Did you ever see,
Such a funny thing before.

I've got a cousin Daniel,
And he's got a cocker spaniel,
If you tickled 'im in the middle,
He would lift his leg and piddle.

Oh, I've got a cousin Rupert,
He plays outside half for Newport,
They think so much about him,
That they always play without him.

Oh, I've got a cousin Anna,
And she's got a grand piana,
And she'd 'ammer, 'ammer, 'ammer,
Till the neighbors say "God damn her."

Oh, I've got a brother Mike,
Who rides a motor bike,
He can get from here to Gower,
In a quarter of an hour.

We should definitely add this one to our DWJ singalong, right after "Nine
Ferrets in a Bottle"

"They think so much about me that they always play without me" might
come from a song. I know a song with a similar phrase, but since I
learned it as a child I don't know whether it is a soccer song or
whether my wording is exactly right. It has a very soccer flavour,
though. It's called "Cosher Bailey".

Ahem.

Here goes.

<Loud joyful tuneless singing in Australia>

Cosher Bailey drove a train
And it was a dreadful strain
For according to its power
Only went 5 miles an hour.
(chorus)
Was you never saw,
Was you never saw,
Was you never saw
Such a funny thing before.

On the night run down from Gower
She reached 18 miles an hour
As she whistled though the station
Boy she startled half the nation.
(chorus)

And his younger brother Keith
He plays scrum back half for Leith
And they think so much about him
That they always play without him.
(chorus)

And his younger sister Anna
She would play the grand piana
She went 'ammer  'ammer 'ammer
Blooming 'ammer 'ammer 'ammer.
(chorus)

</singing>

Oh I enjoyed that  :-)
