Hargreaves also wrote several songs for Billy Williams, including Postcards
(1908); and I Must Go Home Tonight (1909), both of which some sources
have credited to Williams and Fred Godfrey. Hargreaves and Godfrey certainly
collaborated on The Death Of Rag-Time (1913) and Oh, The Baa-Baa-Baa-Lambs!
Hargreaves manager and first husband of the great male impersonator
and Music Hall star Ella Shields wrote many big hits, including
Little Yellow Bird (with C.W. Murphy, 1903); Victoria Monks’
Give My Regards To Leicester Square and If You Want To Have
A Row Wait Till The Sun Shines (both 1906). Biggest of all was Ella
Shields’ immortal Burlington Bertie From Bow (with credits
occasionally also attributed to Lawrence Wright, 1915).
