'All folk songs are metaphors for sex'? Hmmm!

As there is every possibility PeterB wrote this from scratch with a little imput from the Danish ballad, it very likely does have sexual metaphors or sexual content as he was rather partial to his spicy bits and sometimes pushed this angle to extremes.

'Some versions'? I presume you are referring to modern adaptations like Martin's.
