LESLIE BENNETT (Baritone) and THE STATION MALE VOICE CHORUS folk Songs :
IN the first song the jolly carter tells how, out with his waggon one morning in the Spring. he met a maid and quickly made the pace at wooing her, so that by the fourth verse she is saying, ' You can take me. young man. if you wish.' The story is told to a background chorus c,f-
Well done. Robin : drive on. Robin :
Drive along, Robin ; right-o and goe woa.
In the second Song the sailor tells his maid that the is ' bound for the East Indies, where the loud cannons roar.' and after an affecting farewell, he assures her that if ever lie returns he will make her his bride.
The last song is a setting of a familiar poem beginning :--
When Lawyers strive to heat a breach, And Parsons practise what they preach , Then Boney he'll come pouncing down. And march his men on London town !
Rollicum-rorum, tol-lol-lorum, Rollicum-rorum, tol-lol-lay ! verse satirically postulates a different and extremely unlikely event, and ends with ' Then Boney he'll come marching etc.
