Cunliffe was a popular light comedian who was at the height of his
success just prior to the First World War. Many of Whit Cunliffe's
songs featured "Girls" in the Titles; indeed one is called "They won't
let me sing about the girls"
Nevertheless, he does. Other songs had topical or political references
which make them fascinating today. A total of 23 tracks by Whit
Cunliffe, all recorded between 1910 and 1915.
Up She goes Follow me girls
Knocking at Every Door He's Alright I shouldn't be here tonight
Let's have free trade amongst the girls It's the tailor makes the man
I'm on my honeymoon You can't judge a woman by her clothes There's
something in the seaside air Let's go round to Mr. Riley's They won't
let me sing about the girls They can do without us We are not out
much Follow the Baldheads Mister Cupid That's what they all say
Advertise I had a divil of a time last night In these hard times In
the dear old town that I was born in Tight skirts have got to go You
must have a night out now and then.
