Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Cook's Friend Emily
I sang this song in a primary school in Grove, Berkshire, England in the late 1960s. At least once a week an older blind man would play the piano and taught us this song. I recall him saying that he wrote it. This might explain why he made us sing it over and over. I never liked the song much, he taught us many more interesting songs, but the bloody song stuck in my head forever.

It was "pops in the back way to tell us all the news" ...
