This one is an oldie. I knew it as "Your baby has gone down the plughole." Usually sung in a cockney accent.

Ok, the tune peaked my interest. What are the words?

The words are in the DT.
I saw the words in a book by Spike Milligan and presumed he wrote it. Did he? Anyone know?

I had given up searching, but after Mick said it's in the DT I made another effort: DT's title is 'Dahn the plug'ole'. Unfindable if you search for plughole (as I did).

Spike Milligan didn't write this one; it's usually credited "anon.", and I've always supposed it to be a Music Hall song. I think Cream recorded a version in the '60s, with Ginger Baker singing? Or not?

Thet did, Malcolm - and performed it live at the Albert Hall! They did it as "The Mother's Lament", I believe.
