I recorded a couple of verses of this Music Hall song in a Dorset Pub. Does anyone have the rest, and some details?

Very fond of fireworks was Gerry McIntyre
He bought a pound of bangers, and chucked them on the fire
Blew all his Fathers whiskers off and all his mothers hair
In fact the weren't a single sign of Whiskers anywhere

His Father went and got a job to suit him to a T,
Found him a position, working in a factory,
All the work he had to do was making shot and shell
from dynamite and other stuff for blowing folks to hell.
But they soon made an Angel of him there!
They soon made an Angel of him there!
He was looking down a gun,
When they fired it just for fun,
And the soon made an Angel of him there!

Does this jog any memories?

Jim Dixon made mention of it about 15 years back. I think you can access info about it in Internet Archives.

I've trawled through about 300 posts by Jim, but no luck. Is he still around?

Jim mentioned this in the thread Lyr Req: The Old Cracked Basin (T W Connor) as one of many songs written by T.W. Connor.

Brilliant! I've been waiting 30 years for that. The link is out of date but the rest will follow now thanks to you. If I go to publication I'll put an acknowledgment in for you. At the moment I'm tied up with another songbook which you'll find as another thread now.
Thanks again
Nick
