The First of May is one name for it (DMWC 115, in G there), The Jolly/Little Beggarman sometimes , after the song set to the same tune (the Old Rigadoo/Johnny Dhu etc).

I am a little beggarman, a begging I have been
For three score years in this little isle of green
I'm known along the Liffey from the Basin to the Zoo
And everybody calls me by the name of Johnny Dhu.
Of all the trades a going, sure the begging is the best
For when a man is tired he can sit him down and rest
He can beg for his dinner, he has nothing else to do
But to slip around the corner with his old rigadoo.
