Hello Everyone,
I'm ust wondering if anyone has an old Stanley Holloway LP that has the song Mary Ellen on it? I had a friend who had the LP but he has died, and I named my daughter Maryellen. I would love her to hear the song - it was a really nice one! If anyone can tell me the name of the LP that would be a start! The words would also be great!
Many thanks to you all!

Well there is either I'm Shy Mary Ellen *I'm Shy

or this

By Herbert Rule and Henry Casting

Mary Ellen At The Church Turned Up!

In our little village there has been a tragedy,
Deary, deary me, such a terrible tragedy
Mary Ellen Bottomley today should have been wed,
It's a good job that she didn't, so everybody said,

Mary Ellen at the church turned up,
Her Ma turned up and her Pa turned up,,
Her sister Gert and her rich uncle Bert,
And the parson in his long white shirt turned up,
But no bridegroom with the ring turned up
But a telegraph boy with his nose turned up
Brought a telegram that said, he didn't want to wed,
And they'd find him in the river with his toes turned up.

The people waiting in the street, they fairly blocked the road,
They waited in the road for the money the bridegroom owed,
My heart is broken, cried the bride, so Jim the butcher's son
He rushed into his shop and brought her out another one.

A week went by, then someone learned the bridegroom wasn't drowned,
He went around and found John asleep in his bed so sound,
His real wife, she was waiting at the church that day, it's true,
Said, if there'd been a wedding there'd have been a fun'ral too.

If the one that's wanted is I'm Shy Mary Ellen, I'm Shy, the link above provides the words and two short mp3s, but I think I have a recording of Stanley Holloway singing the whole song on a TV programme. Should I dig it out and get it digitised? Or would that infringe someone's copyright?
