The beginning of the song sounds like a sad ballad in which a bereaved lover is lamenting the loss of his darling. As the verses continue, the incidents mentioned are so ridiculous that it becomes obvious that the song is a tongue-in cheek parody of a sad ballad. The melody is believed to have been an old Spanish ballad, written by Gerald Brenan. The melody was published in the book South from Granada and became popular with the Mexican miners during the Gold Rush. The melody was best known from Romance del Conde Olinos o Niño, a sad love story very popular in Spanish-speaking cultures
In a cavern, in a canyon Excavating for a mine Dwelt a miner, forty-niner And his daughter, Clementine. Oh my darling, oh my darling Oh my darling, Clementine You are lost and gone forever Dreadful sorry, Clementine.

Drove she ducklings to the water Ev'ry morning just at nine Hit her foot against a splinter Fell into the foaming brine
