Rate this:
One of Marie Lloyd's signature songs, When I Take My Morning Promenade, recorded by Lloyd circa 1910. Though tame by 21st century standards, the lyrics were considered rather ribald at the time: Chorus: When I take my morning promenade/ Quite a fashion card, on the Promenade/ Oh! I don't mind nice boys staring hard/ If it satisfies their desire/ Do you think my dress is a little bit/ Just a little bit..... Well not too much of it,/ Though it shows my shape just a little bit/ That's the little bit the boys admire. Lloyd further accentuated the lewdness of her songs with suggestive winks, intonations, and gestures in performance.
