MGM·Lion Origins: songs about girl w/ promiscuous father (45) RE: Dad tells daughter that her suitors are her kin 26 Apr 16

Ewan MacColl used to tell it as a tale in Scottish accent, of the father who would forbid his son to marry any girl he suggested because "She's ma ain natural dochter." His mother, asking son why so unhappy at one particular such warning as he was truly in love, consoled him with "Ne'er ye mind him, ma son; just ye gang aheed and wed the lass. He's no' your faither at a'!"
