This article concerns itself with the connection between the song The Wild and Wicked Youth, or In Newry Town (Roud 490), and the Fielding brothers, Henry and Sir John, and their 'gang', the Bow Street Runners. It notes that many of the attitudes implicit in the song are reflected in the brothers' writings on crime prevention. It also notes and attempts to explain the song's longevity and continued popularity.
