Subject: Jubilee song 1897

Many years ago I collected a song from an old gentleman from Aberdeenshire. It was an English song, not Scots; and he had learned it as a young man in 1897. It's about the Diamond Jubilee [I'm sure not the Golden one] of Queen Victoria. I can't find my recording so I'm asking the ever-knowledgeable Mudcatters if they can shed any light on this. What I remember is:

A very good evening, my jubilee friends,
Please forgive me for being so rude,
But a jubilee song in this jubilee year
I will sing if you do not intrude....

[Chorus:]
I'm out on a jubilee spree,
I'm full up of jubilee ale;
I was locked uo last night in a jubilee cell,
And I'm out on a jubilee bail.

All the things in our house have got jubilee names;
These are my jubilee clothes;
We've a cat that's got jubilee kittens, in fact
I've a jubilee wart on my nose.[Chorus]

It's a music-hall song, evidently, and must be published somewhere, but I've never run across it, and can't find it on the internet. Ideas, anyone?

Refresh
- It's a bit more relevant now with the Diamond Jubilee of ER coming up.
