Music Hall songs depended upon stereotype images of characters so that audiences would easily recognise them. Industrialisation had a profound affect on the Welsh culture, and the caricatured 'Welshman' emerged as a cloth capped, drinking and strike prone, worker. The Welshman in this song is refereed to as 'Taff' and Welsh surnames such as those of Owen and Jones have already been labelled as typically Welsh.
