Thanks, Jim, I'll check that out.

Mrzzy -- I've never heard of that one. That makes three narratives attached to one tune and chorus.

Then there's the Sir Lancelot (Odetta, etc.) lyrics about the "Holland Man" which, I gather, tie into the film "I Walked with a Zombie" which includes Sir Lancelot performing the song. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mna6IdRKRqA That's the earliest I know of the tune and chorus, but the story is completely different and not humorous.

So did someone parody Lancelot's song or did he parody an existing, but unrecorded, joke version?
