While you're cleaning, Joe, please be aware that there is no substance in the assertion by some that the ancient ballad is related to the many versions of Billy Boy. There is no poisoning or even hint of dark deeds in Billy Boy. Like many folk songs they just happen to have a similar first line and format, but so do thousands of other folk songs that are not related.
