Thread Name: Lyr Req: Our Jack's Come Home Today
Subject: RE: Lyr help: Our Jack's Come Home -Aussie song
Just off the top of my head -I wonder if this song was ever a part of an old melodrama. Tony Hancock did a piece called, "Jack's Return Home" that used ideas from several plays (eg. lines from Pinter) but was based on a sailor returning home and was done in the style of an old melodrama. Just wondering. Cheers, Joy
