This is a familiar tune to most record collectors but it's not easily found - i have the following on Nicole 5177 recorded C 1903 by "pete Hampton" Which i assumed was some sort of Pseudonym BUT it wasn't Pete Hampton (1871-1916)Came to Britain with "In Dahomey" and stayed on. Made a lot of records.

here's mmy recording apparently a rare Variant for Nicole


and here's a version from Rob's channel by Arthur Collins C 1902

Corruption in the CLPGS :
The Seven Social Sins are:
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!
