BOY IN THE GALLERY, THE George Ware 1885 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! Now 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 Borough, Where they sole and heel them while you wait! 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! Now if I were a duchess and had a lot of money, I'd give it to the boy who'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! 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! notes - Old music hall song written for Nellie Power but made famous by Marie Lloyd Lyrics as published by EMI Music Publishers London 1977 "Borough" is probably Borough Market in Southwark London Recorded many times, "recently" by Pat Kirkwood with Ken Moule (piano) April 1977 London (Contributed by Peter Akers - April 2013)
