One of those "pretending to be a toff" or 'toff fallen on hard times' songs, like "Burlington Bertie" or "We're a Couple Of Swells." Subtitled "The Optimistic Outcast'," a parody of the false values of aristocratic society. Popularized by singer Morny Cash. The song is subtitled "The Optimistic Outcast". Subtle social comment buoyed up by a rousing chorus. From the great days of the Britsh Music Hall.
