A 78 rpm disc with a morbid title!

When I was looking in a charity shop in Rickmansworth, the title of this disc struck me as very unusual.  Thankfully in the days of old music hall these were intended as comedy songs

 I checked this out and have found a video of the song sung by it’s writer I sarony.  You may like to view this

We used to have one of these wind up gramophones in our loft when I was a child.  We used to play some of these old 78s with great interest, but also used to put toy soldiers on top of the turntable and see how long it would be before they fell off!  Happy Days but what a waste of such a superb vintage gramophone in retrospect!
