Miss Hooligan’s Christmas Cake

The lyrics to this fine bit of music hall about a bungling Irish cook were published in Scotland at some time around 1880.
The Ranters were often called ‘hooligan poets’ and I know that I certainly was one as young tearaway.
The music hall tradition was there in Ian Dury, the Sex Pistols, as well as with poets today such as Ian Duhig.
