This was something of a discovery for me despite the fact that i had had the record from some years - i Don't alas have the original (if it exists) but as this may be the only recording of kate Carney singing this song it's all we have

This is a great song and was included in the 1935 HMV Recording of the Royal variety Performance from the London palladium - Compered by Stanley Holloway the four sides include

Alice Lemur, Gus elan , Arthur rees etc

You can find "When the Summer Comes Again" AKA "three Pots a shilling" at 6.30

here are the lyrics

WHEN THE SUMMER COMES AGAIN
(Three Pots A Shilling)

div

Oh won't we save some money, Nell
When the summer comes again
Life will be all honey, gal
When the summer comes again
We shall roam around the country
With pretty flowers, sunshine or rain
Straight, we'll buy up Covent Garden
When the summer comes again.

Chorus: When the summer comes again
And the pretty flowers are growing
The sunshine after rain
The summer breezes blowing
Then to roam around the country
With a girl who's ever willing
I can buy and she can cry
Three pots a shilling.

Sweet window flowers then you'll cry, Nell
When the summer comes again
Toffs from us will buy 'em, gal
When the summer comes again
For I know the best of houses
Where lots of profit we can gain
Splendid clothes they'll give for flowers
When the summer comes again.

Chorus:

Oh won't we turn out dashing, Nell
When the summer comes again
Folks will talk about it, gal
When the summer comes again
You shall dress in 'broche' velvet
And me silver watch and chain
Let coves see we knows our book, Nell
When the summer comes again.

Chorus:

Wealth without work. Pleasure without conscience. Knowledge without character .Commerce without morality. Science without humanity. Worship without sacrifice. Politics without principle.

Money. Greed. Naivety. Falsehoods. Exploitation. Welcome to the wonderful world of gramophones!
