GUEST,Grace Help - music/dance hall music (World War I) (22) Help - music/dance hall music 07 Sep 02

Hi All:

I am writing a stage play based during world war one. I need some upbeat songs or poems that soldiers would have known and enjoyed singing and hearing during the early phase of the war.

One song should be upbeat, funny/humourous, and easily played with little to no instruments.

The other needs to be music they would have heard at a pub or music hall/vaudeville, and a guitar will accompany the music. Again upbeat is the key.

Any suggestions, copy of the lyric please email me at

Thanks, Grace
