If the song is obscure but the words are clear, even better. The character is meant to leave the others unsettled with his strange song.
I appreciate any help you can offer. Googling has left me digging through nursery rhymes and the like and finding very little info on the background of the song. Even by date, it didn't seem consistent.
Variants of "british children songs 1800s" and keywords- nursery rhymes, war, battle, England, music box.
Thanks to any that can help!
