This cheeky ditty was written by the British Music Hall artist Fred Earle (1877-1915) and fits well into the British double entendre sense of humour, like another of his songs “Up Went my Little Umbrella”. Although the song is not listed in the Roud index, it has turned up regularly in the repertoire of source singers, including Reg Hannis of Cranham and Bill Cooper of Witcombe.
