@cherrie,
Thank you Cherie. I can see that my education has been seriously flawed by not knowing this. I do vaguely recall it but at 82 everything is vaguely recalled!!!
Regards,
John

@cherrie,
That's national/regional variagions for you.

Someone has a whole video segment on all the different versions of Jingle Bells, Batman Smells, and there's quite a lot.
