Published in 1860, Simon the Cellarer was composed by John Liptrott Hatton (1809-1886) and its lyrics written by W. H. Bellamy. This fine Victorian song tells the humorous story of a middle-aged couple, both very much attached to their tipple, whereby the wily cellarer evades the amorous advances made by one Dame Margery who, in her old age, seeks to enter the state of matrimony.
