Origin of this verse ?

I always thought the following verse was from Glasgow and was recited a bit like this:-

Spring has sprung !
Ra grass has riz
I wunder where ra burdies is ?
Ra burdz is oan ra wing
But that's absurd !
Cos ra wings is oan ra burd !

Well, that's how my Dad used to say it !

But I've since discovered this version on the internet -

The Budding Bronx

Der spring is sprung
Der grass is riz
I wonder where dem boidies is?

Der little boids is on der wing,
Ain't dat absoid?
Der little wings is on de boid!

Is either of them the original ?

That sounds like something by Bud Neil of the evening times of yesteryear.
