Add "Mixed Up Family" to the list.

MIXED UP FAMILY
(Jimmy Driftwood)

Father, oh dear father, get off of your lazy bones
Tomorrow I will marry my lover Jimmie Jones
Daughter, oh dear daughter, you'll have to find another
You cannot marry Jimmie Jones for he is your half brother

Father, oh dear father, I hope that you won't care;
Tomorrow I will marry my lover John O'Dare.
Daughter, oh dear daughter, you'll have to find another,
You cannot marry John O'Dare for he is your half brother.

Father, oh dear father, I hope that you won't frown,
Tomorrow I will marry my lover Jimmie Brown.
Daughter, oh dear daughter, you'll have to find another,
You cannot marry Jimmie Brown for he is your half brother.

Mother, oh poor mother, my poor heart is undone,
Every boy I love, turns out to be my father's son.
Daughter, oh dear daughter, go on and make your vow,
It ain't no sin, for you're no kin to your father anyhow!
