“Old Jimmy Sutton”
Bill took the gun, Bill went a-huntin'/Bang went the gun, down went the mutton, baa!" and similar verses about an inept farmer. Cho: "Can't dance that, can't dance nothin'/I wouldn't give a blank for the old Jimmy Sutton, baa!"
Just enough plot to avoid the nonballad keyword by a whisker. - PJS
