Does anyone have the original lyrics to "Poor Little Angeline"?

My info is that it was written in 1936 by Grosz & Kennedy. Gracie Fields recorded it not long after.

Leadfingers mentioned "Jack Hylton band record from 1934 of Poor Little Angeline" in another thread about tender love songs gone naughty but I don't see any lyrics.

Have you done the thread search for "poor little angeline"?

Thanks, guys. Thread search yielded bawdy parodic versions only, and Sheet Music Warehouse wants 21 bucks plus postage for a copy of the original.

Some 'Catter must have them somewhere!

I haven't found a solid reference to a Jack Hylton recording.

POOR LITTLE ANGELINE
(Will [Wilhelm] Grosz & Jimmy Kennedy, 1936)

has been recorded by:
Willie Lewis and His Entertainers, on "1936-1938" [1996]
Slim Whitman, on "I'm a Lonely Wanderer" [1963]
Joe Loss
Gracie Fields
Vera Lynn with Jay Wilbur and his band
Roy Fox & His Band

Does anybody know anything about the original clean version of this song? Especially, can anyone quote any lyrics that are NOT in the bawdy version?

More info: POOR LITTLE ANGELINE is one of several songs associated with the Palais Glide, a popular dance "invented at the Hammersmith Palais, a famous London dance hall, executed in long rows with a lot of stamping and leg kicking." In a couple of instances, it has been recorded under the name "Poor Little Angeline (Palais Glide)" or "Palais Glide (Poor Little Angeline)."

Click here for some pictures of some Australians performing the Palais Glide, near the middle of the page.

There is a sound sample of the Willie Lewis recording of "Poor Little Angeline" at Yahoo! Shopping > Music, but he is speaking, not singing, in French. I can't understand much of the French, but my guess is, he's giving instructions on how to perform the Palais Glide.

Apologies for the confusion I have caused - I heard the record played on the old Radio 2 'Dance Band' programme and misremembered it as Jack Hylton. I wish I had been able to tape it as I would be keen to
get the 'Clean' lyrics myself. The rude version was a standard in
the NAAFI bar in Germany in the early sixties.

POOR LITTLE ANGELINE
(Will [Wilhelm] Grosz & Jimmy Kennedy, 1936)

1. She was sweet sixteen, little Angeline,
Always dancing on the village green.
As the boys passed by, you could hear them cry:
"Poor little Angeline!"

2. Oh, her eyes were brown and her hair hung down,
Laddered stockings and an old blue gown;
But she dreamed, we're told, of a lover bold.
Poor little Angeline!

BRIDGE: Then one day her prince came a-riding
And he stopped right by her side.
Very soon she hear him confiding:
"I want to make you my bride."

3. What a pretty scene on the village green
When the prince was wed to Angeline!
Now as his princess, she's a great success.
Poor little Angeline!

Joe,
I have the original sheet music.
If you want the score and lyrics etc I'll post it after I've finished with all the Clifton and Geoghegan stuff I have.

Okay Thilin, it's on its way, but don't give out your full email on chatrooms like this in future. They are hoovered up by spam merchants.

You can play or download Gracie Fields singing POOR LITTLE ANGELINE at The Internet Archive. It's song #6 on that page.

For the curious, there is a separate thread about the raunchy "rugby" version of POOR LITTLE ANGELINE.

This was the first record I remember hearing, sometime in the early '50s - my mum and dad weren't particularly musical (which runs in the family) but they had the 78. I don't know who were the artistes, but it was a dance band and a male singer.

The only time I've heard it since was once when Peta Webb sang it.

YouTube has a couple of videos of people dancing the Palais Glide to the tune of POOR LITTLE ANGELINE:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dkrd5EO4JM8

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hYulfy_cs1I

These are fairly recent videos.

Looks like an ancestor of country line dancing.

My Gran in England sang this to me and danced me around their living room when I was 4 and visited from Texas. I thought the words were Oh, Pretty Little Angeline, but then, that was 30+ years ago. So glad to see some info about the song online.

Thanks for the memory.

Now that she's Princess, she's a great success

I,ve known the song nany years and the full version above is quite correct,though it,s reasonable that one or two changes could be made I have a version sung by the great Slim Whitman--I play guitar ( badly but I,ve been unable to find the music for this delightfull song
