Some friends of mine pointed outa while ago that certain songs can be 
sung to the tune of Greensleeves, and the lyrics of Greensleeves can 
likewise be sung to their tunes. The secret, of course, is that 
Greensleeves is in iambic pentameter.
     
Someone with too much free time has a webpage about this:
     
http://webcom.com/shadow/grotto/gilligan.html
     
The list only has modern stuff on it, so all of the broadside ballads 
which are sung to Greensleeves (or Millfield) aren't included, but 
here's their list:
     
     Greensleeves/What Child Is This
     Gilligan's Island
     House of the Rising Sun
     Stairway to Heaven
     Amazing Grace
     American the Beautiful
     O Little Town of Bethlehem
     Puff the Magic Dragon
     The Yellow Rose of Texas
     The "Ode to Joy" from the Fourth Movement of Beethoven's 9th Symphony, 
     The Marine Corps Hymn
     Sandy (by Harry Chapin):
     
     Sandy is the seashore
     And Sandy is the sea
     Sandy is the clear blue sky
     Or so it seems to me
     Oh yes, I see her everywhere
     In everything I see
     She can turn to anything
     That she would like to be
     
     most sonnets by Shakespeare
     any poem by Emily Dickinson
