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  (75KB)

        Example #2.   (120KB)

AOL Users: <a href="">Example #1</a>
                    <a href="">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.
