Scenic Sunday: under the spreading of the old oak tree,song


Does anyone remember this song that we teach to children, "Under the spreading of the old oak tree?" I looked up the google search but can't find it.

It goes like this:
Under the spreading of the old oak tree,
There we sat just you and me,
Oh! How happy we could be,
under the spreading of the old oak tree.

Of course, when I am not in a romantic mood, I teach the children," Help the sky if falling, I am going to tell the king."

I don't remember the song but I sure do love the spreading branches!

Although there is another song I remember, tie yellow ribbons round the old oak tree!
