Thread Name: Songs about getting really old?
Subject: RE: Songs about getting really old?
EBarnacle: Surely, Mr Seeger must have known that "Fair Harvard" took its tune from "Believe Me, If All Those Endearing Young Charms" -- which, come to think, belongs here too.

However, I suspect he was spoofing. The resemblance between that tune and that of "Get Up and Go" is not great. If they were sung simultaneously, there would be many discords.
