0 - Solo voice. This comic ballad resembles the English ballad Our Goodman. The singer says he learned it from a recording. Towards the middle of the performance, the singer imitates a woman?s singing voice as part of a dialogue between a man and a woman. The performance is followed by a short discussion about the history of the song. [Source: Editor]
