E.W. Rogers  (1864-1913)
Last updated: 04.07.20
For such a prolific composer, I find it amazing that so little can be gleaned from the Internet. In British Music Hall: An Illustrated History by Richard Anthony Baker, he is worth a paragraph.
E.W. [Edward William] Rogers was an English songwriter of popular music for the music hall born in Newington, London. He started his career performing sketches written by Harry Pleon. His first big success as a songwriter was Ask a Policeman (1888), co-authored with Augustus E. Durandeau and sung by James Fawn.
Following in Father's Footsteps (1902), made famous by the great Vesta Tilley, and Skylark! Skylark! (1902), sung by Arthur Lennard can be found in 60 Old-Time Variety Songs.
He died in Wandsworth, London.
This list is arranged by title and contains 27 lyrics written by E.W. Rogers. The lyrics/monologues and *.pdf files have been kindly compiled by monologues.co.uk/musichall Keys: pdf15.gif
