I cant find anything on the web for this song. Only one site mentions it but then zilch when i go to that site. The song goes something like this:

Dear Little Jammy Face
I love you so
I'd like to be your sweetheart or your Mammy
etc.

The BMI Repertoire says DEAR LITTLE JAMMY FACE was written by somebody named Russell. The Sheet Music Warehouse also lists it , attributed to "K Russell." That's all I've found so far.

I cannot access the site just now, but try a goole of

STUMPERS-L archives -- June 2004 (#67)

Might be something there.

What was the name of your Great Grandmother? I've been trying to find information about this song as I remember my Grandmother singing it to me.

My Great Grandmother was called Miss Korrie. She is in the music hall painting called Popularity by Walter Lambert. I know that she sung this song in March 1909 at The Theatre Royal in Plymouth. I have only just got hold of the music and am performing the song this week. My Nan told me that the song was written for her mother (miss Korrie), how true that is I don't know but the lyrics certainly seem to tie in with the family history about her marrying young and having a little boy. From what I have found she certainly appears to be the first person to perform it at a Music Hall. Thats all I can tell you about the song though.

'"Dear little jammy face, I love you so. I wish I were your sweetheart or your mammy. Just what the reason is, I do not know. I guess it's cause your face is all so jammy."'

"Dear little jammy face, I love you so. I wish I were your sweetheart or your mammy. I loved your daddy dear, long long ago. All because his little face was jammy."'

There are all sorts of references to this song, and several libraries have sheet music. I even found the cover page of the sheet music somewhere, but nothing complete.

Best I could come up with is this:

    Dear little jammy face, I love you so,
    Just like your daddy dear, so long ago
    Dear little jammy face, I love you so.
    How I wish I was your sweetheart or your Mammy.

I sing this to my kids every night. My Mum sang it to me and her Mum sang it to her, and her Mum before that :)

Upon a seat one day a little maid sat knitting,
There eating bread and jam a boy was also sitting,
He sat and munched away and never thought she spied him
'Till with a longing sigh she came and sat beside him.
Taking up his sticky hand she bowed her curly head
And roguish eyes to his surprise smiled at him as she said

Dear little jammy face, I love you so
I wish I were your sweetheart or your Mammy
Just what the reason is, I'm sure I don't know
Unless it is because your face is jammy.

Pray won't you let me take a bite of what you're eating?
I do like bread and jam the maiden kept repeating
I'm sorry little girl, the boy said softly sighing,
All of it's gone I fear, then saw that she was crying.
Don't cry little girl and then perhaps I will let you kiss me twice!
The little maiden dried her eyes and said "That would be nice."

Chrorus

There on the seat that day, they vowed that they would marry
When they were old enough, and sure they did not tarry
Now there's another little boy and he's just the sweetest thing
And every night on Mummy's lap he loves to hear her sing

Dear little jammy face I love you so
You're just the very image of your Daddy,
I loved your Daddy dear, long, long ago
And all because his little face was jammy.

According to her autobiography My Life In Crossroads this was the first song Noele Gordon sang. Can't remember whether she meant in public or ever.

Forget my last post. This site says it was sung by Margaret Cooper but written by Kennedy Russell.

"Those who didn't come also missed an historic occasion. Grace Korrie (Hannah Shewan) who sang so delightfully is the great granddaughter of Miss Ellen Korrie and a great great granddaughter of The Musical Korries, who were a famous name in the Music Hall scene until 1930. They are depicted in a famous painting now in the Museum of London, "Popularity", by Walter Lambert which shows 231 of the most popular acts of the Edwardian Music Halls. The song she sang, "Dear Little Jammy Face" was written in 1908 for her great grandmother and first performed by her in 1909. A wonderful piece of Music Hall history."
