Subject: Lyr Add: Let's All Go To The Music Hall
From: keberoxu

There's no entertainment like the good old music hall
That's the place to go to when the evening shadows fall
If you want a spot of laughter when you're feeling blue
Go and book yourself a seat or line up in a queue

CHORUS

When you're tired of talkies and you're fed up with the screen
Follow the example of our gracious King and Queen
In the programme every week there's always something fresh
Come along and see your favorite artistes in the flesh

and the chorus goes:
CHORUS
Let's All Go To The Music Hall
Where the show is gay and bright
Let's All Go To The Music Hall
Where the stars are twinkling twice a night
Whether you sit in a gallery
The circle or the pit
Or whether you sit in a red plush stall
When the busy day is done
If you want to have some fun
Let's All Go To The Music Hall

Do you have a source for this? I enjoy a music hall song.

There are some... interesting renditions on Youtube.

Allison, I found the verses in an online "music hall medley" with no credits; the chorus I learned by heart a long time ago. So, I have gone looking (still online) for any way to tie this lyric down. Here's what I find:

Let's All Go To The Music Hall
words: Ralph Butler & Harry Tilsley
music: Horatio Nicholls,
[who is also known as Lawrence Wright]
first copyright 1934, renewed 1961
from the Renewal Registrations,
Library of Congress
Catalog of Copyright Entries
Third Series
Volume 15, Part 5, no. 2
Washington: 1962

Elsewhere it is stated that Bobbie Comber recorded the song.

Not having luck finding the score online though.
