I haven't made a link to it,
but there is now a website that did not exist
when this thread was started,
specializing in English musical hall,
with a special set of pages for monologues.

Wilkie Bard is prominently featured at that site.
And by now, of course,
he has his own Wikipedia article.
His birthname was William Augustus Smith,
and he was a native of Lancashire.
One online note states that his forehead
was similar to the famous portrait of William Shakespeare,
the receding hairline with the broad domed forehead,
and was one justification for "Bard" as a stage name.

Jim Dixon was, as he usually is, on the right track.
The music-hall website has all the verses in this lyric,
and they agree with what Jim Dixon posted.
