is an old German song apparently composed by one Ludwig Fischer. In the late 19th century it acquired English words by Harry Hunter and was arranged by W. Williams. The Punch

also provided a Latest Up-to-Date Version as it might have been revised by Dr. Mortimer Granville and Mr. James Payn. Dr. Rosteck
and I perform both the regular version and also take delight in the clever, funny lyrics of those two Victorian gentleman.
