Second of three sets of songs at the fair:

  • Four Songs of the Fair (published 1912)
  • Three More Songs of the Fair (published 1917)
  • A Day at the Fair: Four Songs (pub. 1921).

(It is in this set, not apparently? the first set as claimed in the biography link, that one finds "Come to the fair" - later republished with the title e.g. "Come to the fair : song from the album "Three more songs of the fair"" (in 1944).

Not sure if the Helen Taylor viaf suggests is the right one...
