This is a fun little three-part breakdown.  I learned a tune with a similar name as a comedic song with a different melody, but this is a really nice tune.  Roberts played it four times through.  The melody is well expressed the first time through, and subsequent repetitions have small variations.  The first and fourth times, he played it AA BB CC, but the second and third times through he played AA BB CC BB, repeating the B part before going on to the next A part.
