Thread Name: Lyr Req: Champagne Charlie (from Edward Woodward)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Champagne Charlie - Edward Woodward
Tommy Trinder also recorde it in the thirties in a bio-pic about [I think it was] George Laybourne, the music hall star who performed it. Trinder's words are not correct, for some reason I've never understood. The original was an early example of a well-known song being annexed by the advertisers: "Only Moet's vintage satisfies this champagne swell". That's as much as I can remember!
