As I was walking through a wood

(ed: I thought I'd add this contribution from Ray in verbatim - enjoy)

I've a submission for the Hymns and Arias section: "As I was walking through a wood", a rugby song I remember hearing at secondary school, Gosport, Hampshire, UK, around 1970.

The peculiar feature was that both verses were sung twice: first to the tune of "All creatures that on earth do dwell", and then to the tune of the tango "Hernando's Hideaway".

As I was walking through a wood
I shit myself, I knew I would.
I cried for help but no-one came
And so I shit myself again

As I was walking by St Paul's
A virgin grabbed me by the balls
I cried for help but no-one came
So she grabbed me by the balls again.
