GUEST,mayomick Norf and Sarf - cockney songs (72* d) Lyr Add: MOTHER KELLY'S DOORSTEP 24 Mar 08


Moher Kelly's doorstep was always my favourite . I saw Danny La Rue interviewed many years ago who said the song had been written by his coalman . Paradise Row is in Bethnal Green.

On Mother Kelly's doorstep, down Paradise Row
I'd sit along Nelly, she'd sit along Joe

chorus
She had a little hole in her frock,
an hole in her shoe
an hole in her sock where her toe peaked through
But Nelly was the smartest down our alley

On Mother Kelly's doorstep , I'm wonderin' now
If little Nellie remembers Joe
And does she love him the way she used to
On Mother Kelly's doorstep ,down Paradise Row


The songabout the nine inch nails reminds me of the one the Clancy Brothers did in mock cockney accents . I think it was called
They're Moving Father's Grave to Build A Sewer. Anyone remember how it goes?
