Here's a collection of good old English Music Hall songs. Most of them are from the Edwardian Era and have a London Cockney theme with lots of Cockney slang, but some are also from the North Country. I have attempted to collect as many of these as possible, but am always open to additions if anyone has any suggestions. You can e-mail me at: PPorter@socal.rr.com if you have any comments.

These songs are listened to by many people all over the world. London is most likely where the collection of songs is most popular but it wouldn't be uncommon to find them heard in U.S. cities like Los Angeles, San Diego and New York. People of all professions from a California attorney to a police officer in Cambridge can enjoy the old English Music Hall songs.

A copy of most of these songs is also available in printed form in my book with the title "Lyrics to Songs from the Music Hall" from Amazon.com.

Here is a link to a Brewerania site that deals in beer mats and bar towels. It will help give some real atmosphere to that special place at home.
