Bat Goddess look for a Song made up of other songs (28) RE: look for a Song made up of other songs 03 Oct 18

Off main topic (but apropos a couple posts above), "Wild Colonial Boy" also works to the tune of "Ghost Riders In the Sky"...with a chorus of "Too ra li oh, too ra li ay, the wild colonial boy".

Another short song made up of song titles was written by Jerry Bryant, "A Shanty In Old Shanty Town":

Only a shanty in old shanty town
Away you Santee and blow the man down.
Where haul away, Joe goes down to Hilo
And Stormalong's drinkin' with Reuben Ranzo.
Shallow Brown, Hieland Laddie, and Jack's in kahoots,
And so we will pay Paddy Doyle for his boots.
And with Boney we'll roll that old woodpile on down
To a shanty in old shanty town.
