Here are links to two version of a dirty ditty known "Sam, Sam the Lavatory
Man".  I am trying to identify the TUNE used for this song.  Does anyone
know of other songs which use this tune? .


        Example  #1     http://tinyurl.com/2yuo5  (75KB)

        Example #2.     http://tinyurl.com/2pl2c   (120KB)

AOL Users: <a href="http://tinyurl.com/2yuo5">Example #1</a>
                    <a href="http://tinyurl.com/2pl2c">Example #2</a>

I can successfully date it to at least WWII but I have been unable to find
anything earlier.  I suspect that is derived from or had commercial examples
sung with different lyrics.

If you can identify the tune, it will be greatly appreciated.

Sincerely,

John Mehlberg
