A Little Of What You Fancy Does You Good!

Marie Lloyd



Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

The sheet music for "A Little Of What You Fancy Does You Good!" credits Words and Music by Fred W. Leigh and George Arthurs, it was published by Francis, Day & Hunter, copyright 1915.
The song was typical of those performed by Marie Lloyd - mistress of the double entendre - who introduced it; her May 1915 recording runs to some 3 minutes 11 seconds. It was also recorded by her daughter, who performed - unusually for a woman - as Marie Lloyd Junior.
The title has long since passed into the English language as a catchphrase, and has leant its name to several books as well as at least one film. (thanks, Alexander Baron - London, England)
