Thread Name: Origins: Ale, ale, glorious ale
Subject: RE: Origins: Ale, ale, glorious ale
As the author of the tentative speculations on the origins of "Glorious Ale" quoted in the original post, I feel slightly obliged to put in my two-pennorth:

(1d) I incline to attributing the song to the "Albert Richardson School" - it does remind me very strongly of "Buttercup Joe", but I can't prove anything.

(2d) I'll have my parsnips roasted, if it's all the same to everyone.
