A lovely song. Great lyrics and a joyful tune. Its 'official' title is 'She was the Belle of the Ball', written by Will Fyffe, who wrote most of his own stuff. It was recorded by him on the Regal label in 1929. Not to be confused with a song of the same name sung by George Leybourne half a century or more earlier.
