I thought it could have been the Pogues, but I can't find any reference to them recording the song.

By the way, the line that the OP transcribed as "right for the deverall" is rendered on lyric sites as "With my fol de dol de rol de dol de lol de dol de lay!", which is just nonsense vocalised filler as is typically found in folk songs, so it's hardly surprising that he was unable to extract any meaningful lyrics out of hearing it.

Default Found the performer

Hi bob_32_116, thanks for all your efforts on this one! I'm sorry I'm a year late... Also thanks to everyone else who contributed to this thread.

For some reason, I didn't receive email notifications when new replies were added to this thread. But today, I got an email from YouTube about a copyright claim related to the clip I posted.

It seems this song has now been re-released through Spotify and similar services. It seems this has now enabled YouTube to match the audio with the correct song.

The performers are Fungus, a Dutch folk-rock band. bob_32_116 named the song as "The White Hare of Howden". Fungus shortened this to "The White Hare" and they released it as the B Side of their 1973 debut single Farewell To Tarwathie.

Fungus were inspired by Anglo-Saxon folk music and applied elements of it to traditional Dutch songs, for example look on YouTube for their sea shanty from 1974, "Kaap'ren varen" (I'm not yet allowed to post links.)

This was an interesting case. Again thanks everyone who contributed!
