I suspect the reason no one has tried to answer the question on the
Tune of the "Announcements" song is that it keeps changing with the
metre. I will try. I think this is about as I have heard it. Does it make
sense to the rest of you?
The announcements line is sort of a bugle call, but I don't know which
one. Sort of each note rising by a third.
The "Horrible Way to Die" segment sounds like "Farmer in the Dell" to me.
The "Sold our cow" segment is "How Dry I Am, Nobody Knows."
the "Keep Announcement Short and Sweet" segment seems to be the
"London Bridge is Falling Down" nursery song.
The others segments that have been suggested "Duke of York," "Mary
had a Little Lamb," "Row, Row Row" should be pretty obvious. If you
can't figure these out, let's talk privately :-)!
