Arthur Lloyd (1839-1904) was a Scottish singer, songwriter, comedian and stage producer, primarily for music hall in the United Kingdom.

He wrote over one hundred and eighty-five songs, all of them now forgotten except for "Married to a Mermaid" (1866) which is occasionally sung in the UK. He performed for the Prince of Wales and other royalty on a few occasions (command performances). Lloyd was the first prolific and successful singer-songwriter for music hall.

Other songs popular in his day that he wrote and performed included:

  • "Cruel Mary Holder" (1866)
  • "Not for Joseph" (1868)
  • "Constantinople" (1870)
  • "Take it, Bob" (1880)
