It's instructive also to look at some of the lyrics of this ballad to understand why it is traditionally believed to have been played by the British at their surrender:
 
If ponies rode men and grass ate cows,
And cats were chased into holes by the mouse . . .
If summer were spring and the other way round,
Then all the world would be upside down.
