Steve: you asked "had you a specific (Kippers) song in mind?"

No, because I haven't heard their songs very often or very recently (from them or from other singers) so have only generic memories. But you did mention "... satirise a whole genre ..." and I seem to recall that some of theirs include references to typical folk song themes rather than being based exclusively on single prototypes.
