Thread Name: Inappropriate Songs
Subject: RE: Inappropriate Songs
John Morgan was a 19th century ballad writer, whose work appeared on many a cheap and cheerful broadside sheet of that period. He wrote pretty much anything that paid, including topical songs, gallows ballads, campaign songs for politicians and good old-fashioned filth. Two of his best innuendo-laden sex songs were The Beautiful Muff and The Cottage, both of which can be found in the Bodleian Library's collection. You can get a taste of their shamelessly suggestive lyrics in the blue box here .
