As the title says, what is the ingame music for "Roland in time"?

What's the title of the original tune?

Thanks

THESE DAYS, most shops have wheelchair access, but once inside the shop, the needs of the disabled are all but forgotten. Whilst in my newsagents the other day, I realised how difficult it must be for someone in a wheelchair to purchase a top shelf magazine. They would have to ask someone to pass it down which would cause great embarrassment... Wouldn't it be a good idea if newsagents had a pneumatic ramp by the magazines to lift wheelchairs up to the top shelf. It could be fitted with flashing lights and a klaxon to warn other customers to keep clear of the mechanism when in operation.

I never realized it was from a real song.


Also appeared in Fringe, with what I think is a Monty Pythons homage :)

I knew it well even back then because we often had to sing it at school.  I forget why exactly. 

That game has an odd soundtrack ripping off two completely unrelated pieces of music. :P
