Historical Notes

"Polly Perkins of Paddington Green" by Harry Clifton (1832-1872) was almost universally known in England until around the mid-1980s, and was commonly taught to school children. The title refers to the district of Paddington in London. The song gained a place in the canonical Oxford Book of Comic Verse, and the original manuscript of "Polly" is now held in the Bodleian Library. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pretty_Polly_Perkins_of_Paddington_Green
