JWB Lyr Req: Four Horse Charabanc / -'Oss Sharrybang (19) Lyr Req: Four Horse Charabanc 15 Aug 07

A friend has asked me if I knew a song about a four horse charabanc. I don't, but I immediately turned to the Digitrad and Forum search, which turned up numerous threads which mention charabancs, and even a song about a trip in one in the early 20th century. However, none of them signify, since here's what my friend is looking for:

"Do you by any chance know a song called The Four Horse Charabanc? It's British, early 19th century. I have some of the words, but they're really mixed up: (Oh will I am, Oh will I am, I've been to the sea side. I've seen a four horse charabanc, says I, I'll take a ride....)"

All the charabancs mentioned in the threads I found appear to be automobiles (something like the minivan of the 1920s).

Can you help with the older song?
