John Roberts and Tony Barrand have recorded a couple of lovely CDs (originally LPs) and Elsa Lanchester did an LP in the '70s ( I think) that has such lovely songs as "When a Lady Has a Veranda" etc. I

t's too late now to pull these out of the my personal database.

There are websites as well such as Music Hall

Could I be cheeky and put my request on this thread please? I have been asked to find music scores for two music hall songs: 'The Boy I Love Is Up In The Gallery'/'The Boy In The Gallery' (composer George Ware, sung by Nellie Power and Marie Lloyd}, and another one sung by Marie Lloyd, possibly titled 'On Monday I Wed a Scotsman'. All I've been able to find on the net is the chorus of the first song. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Joan

I remember 'The boy I love....'
Miss Piggy sang it to Kermit on the Muppet Show many years ago. It was lovely!

You will do well to listen to any CDs about by the late, great duo "Cosmotheka"...there has been nothing lately to replace them!

The boy I love is up in the gallery. George Ware

I'm a young girl and have just come over,
Over from the country where they do things big;
And among the boys I've got a lover,
And since I've got a lover, well I don't care a fig.
Ch
The boy I love is up in the gallery.
The boy I love is looking now at me.
There he is, can't you see?
Waving his handkerchief,
As merry as a robin that sings on a tree.

The boy that I love, they call him a cobbler,
But he's not a cobbler, allow me to state;
For Johnny is a tradesman, and he works in the Boro',
Where they sole and heel them while you wait.

Ch

Now if I were a duchess and had a lot of money,
I'd give it to the boy that's going to marry me.
But I haven't got a penny so we'll live on love and kisses,
And be just as happy as the birds on the tree.

Because most people just sing the choruses, it's easy not to notice that some of the verses in Music Hall songs have really tricky chromatic tunes.

Willa, many thanks for the words, and, yes, I do need the dots, or rather my friend does. He's helping out with a music hall show and needs the dots for these two songs for the pianist. Your help would be very much appreciated.

Dave Sealey of Cosmotheka is still alive and well, and still performing I believe; although I don't know who with and what at since his "Hundred years of songs" thing.

If anyone's formiong a club, put my name down! I did my bit (and more) in the Great Revival in the early 70s, and it doesn't take much to start me off.

I recall the other song, I think the title is make a man of any one of you - is in print in the songbook for Oh What A Lovely War, but it was definately in Marie Lloyd's repertoire.

The book is in print, and I got my copy from Chappells in London

The other obvious person to talk to is John Foreman - I've got cantact details if anyone wants to PM me.

The second song definitely sounds like "I'll make a man of any one of you".   Linda managed to get a Marie Lloyd song book out of our local library - it had both of the songs you mention in it - complete with music and accompaniment. If you want some of the more comic of her songs, there's alway "A bit of a ruin that Cromwell knocked about a bit" and of course "My Old Man said follow the van" - which in the original has a different penultimate line to the chorus for each verse.

For info on the Music Hall you could try Steve Jordan or John and Peter who used to run Crediton Folk Festival. Both have a huge store of knowledge...and of course Roy Hudd who possibly knows more about the music hall than any living soul as he has made it his life's work.

===and of course Roy Hudd who possibly knows more about the music hall than any living soul as he has made it his life's work. ===

Also same applies to John Foreman (aka The Broadsheet King: he is still experimenting with song-card printing &c), with whom I am still in touch - spoke to him a few months ago. He made a fine vinyl record many years ago called The 'Ouses In Between; probably not still available, but could perhaps be tracked down [sorry; my copy not for sale!]. I have his current address; I am sure he wouldn't mind my passing it on to an interested person. PM me if interested.
