Thread Name: Lyr Req: Champagne Charlie Is My Name
Subject: RE: lyrics-- Champagne Charlie is my name
It's not the one I remember, Mark. George Laybourne, the English Music Hall star, sang one that eventually became an add for Moet & Chandon. The chorus goes:

Champagne Charlie is my name,
Champagne Charlie is my game.
Good for any game at night, boys,
Good for any game at night, boys.
Champagne Charlie is my name,
Champagne Charlie is my game.
Good for any game at night, boys,
Who'll come and join me on the spree?

Easy to remember (I've forgotten the verses)! Tommy Trinder sang it with slightly different words in the 1930's film of the same name.

Merry Christmas,

Steve
