Up from Somerset

Well before my time (written 1913), but great fun -
"an Edwardian drawing-room ballad", words by Fred Weatherly, music Wilfrid Sanderson

"Oh, we'm come up from Somerset,
Where the cider apples grow,
We'm come to see your Majesty,
An' how the world do go.
And when you're wanting anyone,
If you'll kindly let us know,
We'll all come up from Somerset,
Because we loves you so!"

"Up from Somerset" - Malcolm McEachern

Benjamin Luxon (with lyrics)
