When I was little, in California, 1940s, the first dirty song that every little boy learned was



There's a place in France

Where the women wear no pants

And the men go round

With their wienies hanging down.



I gather that it was pretty universal in the U.S. Once I was at a circus, and at the end of one of the acts all the elephants defecated in unison. Meanwhikle, the band played the tune of the above song, and I immediately understood that that was appropriate for the dirty part.
