"We'll have a Woolworth Wedding"
by R. P. Weston and Bert Lee
Buying Superintendent John Snow's biggest success of the late 1910s and early 1920s was a range of "sixpenny pops". He nearly cornered the market with the sheet music of the hits of the day. The British stores enjoyed even greater success that Frank Woolworth had achieved when he first launched a music range in the USA.
Our favourite is "We'll have a Woolworth Wedding". R. P. Weston and Bert Lee's describe the kinds of things sold in the High Street stores in the roaring Twenties, with a bit of a twist. The duo wrote many hits, and are most famous for 'I'm Henery the Eighth I am, I am'. Here's are some of the lyrics of the Woolworth Wedding song, which you can play using the HTML5 player below.
