This novelty tune was big during the Music Hall era in England, where it was performed by Lily Morris, who specialized in the genre. The song is about a 20-year-old chambermaid who takes up with the much older owner of the inn, who becomes her sugar daddy. She explains his unlikely behavior - lavishing her with gifts, taking her on trips - by saying it's all because he loves her.
This was written by Harry Castling, who wrote many popular Music Hall songs. Morris also recorded his songs "Turned Up" and "Don’t Have Any More, Mrs. Moore."
Dora Bryan sang this in the 1961 film A Taste of Honey, in which she starred. Her version was released as the B-side of her 1964 single "Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh, Seven."
