I can think of two possibilities:
  1. Whoever wrote the song really had a girlfriend named Fanny Bright, and he included her name in the song
  2. He pulled the name out of the air because it fit well with the rhyming scheme and rhythm of the song
We will probably never know the correct answer, but does it really matter?
