Thread Name: Lyr Req: Champagne Charlie (from Edward Woodward)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Champagne Charlie - Edward Woodward
I can add an extra two lines which my grandmother used to sing.
"Ah! We see you (then) at half-past eight, I'm not certain what, if any, word goes where I have put (then), it might be 'there' or 'now'.
Slowly creeping to the schoolyard gate,
Tardy Scholar is your name"
Perhaps these extra lines will trigger someone else's memory.
She was born c 1886 and I remember her singing it in the 1950's
