apparently some of Röckel's songs are mentioned in George Bernard Shaw's criticism (negatively - the audience, though hardly fastidious, did not consider them a treat - to paraphrase; going by a snippet at google.com - will try to find the original); one of the songs specifically mentioned is this one. (Will also try to find the date of the concert in which it was performed. - Schissel)
