Matthew Edwards Lyr Add: Come into the Garden, Maud (8) RE: Lyr Add: Come into the Garden, Maud 12 Sep 12


There is the story about the great English music-hall singer, Marie Lloyd, which if it isn't true certainly ought to be.

Marie Lloyd was famous for her suggestive lyrics, although all the sauciness was conveyed by gestures and knowing looks, so that she was able to contend that any filth was entirely in the minds of her audience. She proved her point when she was hauled before a local Watch Committee which existed to protect public morality, where she sang 'A Little Bit of What You Fancy Does You Good' in deadpan fashion, and then stunned the members of the committee by rendering 'Come Into the Garden, Maud' in an utterly indecent manner.
