GUEST,Graham Bradshaw Lyr Req: The Fellow That Played the Trombone (10) RE: Lyr Req: 'The Trombone Song' 25 Jan 06


Yes, this is definitely the same song.

According to John Kirkpatrick's notes in Anglo International, it is a Music Hall song dating from 1896, written by Walter Kino.
It first appeared on a Topic LP called Sing, Say and Play in 1978 by Jimmy Knights. Also is performed by Ted Chaplin in the Old Hat Concert Party, so John Howson's reference to Jumbo Brightwell will be correct.
The words are not in Anglo International, but they shouldn't be too difficult to write down. (missing line is: "he pulled that long thing in and out")

Cheers,
Graham
