The song has been parodied several times, the best known of which is the American bawdy song "Seven Old Ladies", sung to the same tune but with different lyrics.

A traditional bawdy pub song! There are lots of different versions and verses, ways of singing it, etc. but here's what I've put together for BUG.

If you like you can play it as a 2 chord song, i.e. take out the [D] - the IV chord.
