I should also add that quite a few of the burlesque versions soon went back into oral tradition and became serious songs. A good example is 'Ah, my Love's Dead' one of Cowells' burlesques which is nowadays sung regularly in folk clubs as a serious song with those shrimps swimming over her head. This tickles me every time I hear it.
