Nothing whatsover to do with the well-known Irish Jig: “Tripping Upstairs”
This one is an English (Cotswold) Morris tune, from the Headington village tradition. If you were playing it for the morris dance, the “music formula” would be: A(AB)4.
It also crops up at traditional English music sessions, where it is usually played in GMaj to suit the D/G melodeon players.
This may be a version of the old 19th century minstrel tune, Such a Getting Up Stairs.
This setting is From Howe’s 1000 Jig and Reels, Clogs, Contra Dances etc
