The Bricklayer's song can be found in the database listed as 'Why Paddy's Not at Work Today (Excuse Note)'. I have also heard it called 'The Sick Note'. The tune the DT gives is fairly close to the version I learned, but FAR to cheerful and upbeat for my liking. ;-) It sounds better when performed slower and a bit more forlorn-sounding, IMHO.
