Max Miller (1894–1963)
  “The Cheeky Chappie”


Max Miller (Norris Collection)Fred Godfrey wrote a number of songs for the great Variety comedian Max Miller, “The Cheeky Chappie,” in the late 1930s. Most appear uncredited or under Miller’s name alone. Godfrey and Miller together, however, are credited for the following songs:

At The Bathing Parade and Everything Happens To Me (both from the 1938 Miller film “Everything Happens To Me”); There’s Always Someone Worse Off Than You (1938); and the following from an unknown date: Waiting At The Garden Gate; We’ve Got A Lot To Be Thankful For; and You Can Always Have A Bit Of Sunshine.

Two other (possibly unpublished) songs may also be by Godfrey and Miller: Picking Up All The Fag Ends and Sing A Little Song In The Morning (dates unknown).
