The Cuckoo's Nest. Sweet Violets. The Money Rolls in. The mechanical structure of the folksong is similar to the most basic form of poetry.
Music and text generally follow an A-B-A pattern—a main theme, a contrasting second theme the "B" section and a repetition of the original theme. Often there is a refrain which serves as a binder, or a device in which the central idea of the ballad is re-stated as a kind of reminder to the listener. A vast number of folksongs reflect man's weaker instincts and actions. Since people do not say in public what they really think in private, it was inevitable that balladeers were tempted to assemble a huge storehouse of ditties which deal with some of man's more common foibles.
Public censorship being what it is, these ditties have been rele- gated to the "back room. And so, to all tipsters and gay lotharios, to modest maidens and those who reckon pruri- ence more dearly than prudishness, to those hard-living men and their winsome wenches, to the ladies of the sewing circle and the gentlemen of the poetry club, take comfort and joy.
So that your appetite may be good and your stomach strong, so that your nights may be filled with laughter and enjoyment, here is offered a generous serving of amorous adventure to suit every taste. Enjoy what you find here, for you know not what tomorrow brings. To the tune of an old English Song, this rare specimen relates the complications that arise with each of seven elderly ladies who are locked in a ladies room.
