I suppose there must be a website with the tune listed. For those who have never heard it, it is a bright sort of song in the Noel Coward mold from that sort of period but I couldn't quote a year. I believe it is just as viable a tune as many 'Strathspeys' we have to dance to. I can't even remember many of the lines but one that sticks is "With the bailiffs at the door When the clock strikes four Everything stops for tea"
