A popular song that Rand plays a The Dancing Cartman, where it is known as The Drunken Peddler (TEotW, Ch. 32). He later plays it for Kadere's men (TFoH, Ch. 3).

Tinker in the kitchen, with a job of work to do,
Mistress up above, slipping on a robe of blue.
She dances down the staircase, her fancy all so free,
Crying, Tinker, oh, dear Tinker, won't you mend a pot for me?

(The Fires of Heaven, Chapter 3)
