George Formby Jr. (1904–61)
Fred Godfrey wrote a number of songs for the great Variety and film favourite George Formby Jr. in the late 1930s and into the 1940s. Most appear with Formby’s name attached to the composing credits; Formby generally did not write his own material, however, but made small changes to suit his style.1
The following songs are credited to Formby and Godfrey, unless otherwise noted:
