Donkeys are in Love with Carrots - Song #36

I am not finding a lot of info about this song at first glance - it's a simple song with silly lyrics. And that's about it.

Donkeys are in love with carrots
carrots aren't in love at all
Hee haw hee haw
Listen to their braying call

Anyone know any more than this?

2 - I love this version, though it's not sung as a round. 1970 reggae:

3 - And finally, in the original German, more or less, by a guy and girl who look like they are at a camp similar to Ajawah:
