GUEST,Murray on Saltspring Origin: Do Your Ears Hang Low? (13) RE: Do Your Ears Hang Low? 20 Jan 00

Like most folksongs, especially the rude ones, this has several versions, and two or three tunes. I think there was a thread about this a while ago; but meanwhile here's the one I know, got from an English public school boy from Yorkshire in the Royal Navy, 1952:
Do your balls hang low?
Can you swing them to and fro?
Can you tie them in a knot?
Can you tie them in a bow?
Can you swing them to the ceiling
with that free and easy feeling,
Did you ever catch your ballocks
In a rat-trap, O?
Tune is "The College Hornpipe".
