Songs of Comedy and Diversion

From Folkopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Many folk songs are comic, arising from many subjects, and some songs are just whimsical fantasies. Songs about legendary animals such as Froggy went a courtin, The Derby Ram, and The Herrin's Head fall into this category, as do Tom Pearce and Rothesay-O. We could also include sports and pastimes like Heenan and Sayers, The Cock Fight, or The Rigs of the Fair.
