...the bear climbed where??

Recently a friend bestowed us with this old Liquor Decanter with a music box in the bottom.  The music box is in working condition, and we were trying figure out the tune.  FINALLY I came up with 'The bear climbed over the Mountain' ~ but I couldn't figure out Why they would put a child's song on this bottle...  Then J countered with a guess of 'For he's a Jolly Good Fellow'.  Further investigation uncovered that 'The Bear...' was put to the music of the old lyrics 'For He's...'!!   
         WHO KNEW?!?!

Not me! Same as Twinkle twinkle and ABC. Same music. And now they sue people for using the same series of notes in a song!
