GUEST,Barrie Roberts Lyr Req: Charlotte the Harlot (45) RE: Charlotte the Harlot 09 Jan 05


Haven't we got 3 songs here? 'Charlotte the Harlot', 'The Death of C the H' and 'Kafoozelum'?
'Kafoozelum', for those who care, was a clean, silly, music-hall song until the British Army got its hands on it. Rudyard Kipling, no less, asserted that the poor girl's downfall occurred in S.Africa during the 2nd Boer War.
It has been said that Jack the Ripper was the poet J.K.Stephens and that his pattern of killing can be related to the events in the obscene version of 'Kafoozelum'. He probably was, but they can't.
