It could JUST be feasible that a 'muckman' was a 'night-soil' operative but whee wad want to brag aboot it in a song?

The 'candy man's trumpet' is more likely te be the Rag & Bone man's bugle - Aah divvent think that a bailiff's warning wad steal a young lass's heart away - Forbye a rag-man could be quite a good earner & provider.

It has nee real bearin' anyway - They're aall deid!
