As originally recorded by HARRY CHAMPION: When I was a nipper only six months old My Mother and my Father, too They didn't know what to wean me on They were in a dreadful stew They thought of tripe, they thought of steak Or a little bit of old cod row I said, "Pop round to the old cook-shop And I tell ya what'll make me grow" Boiled beef and carrots Boiled beef and carrots That's the stuff for your 'darby-kell' Makes you fat and it keeps you well Don't live like vegetarians On food they give to parrots Blow out your kite from morn' till night On boiled beef and carrots When I got married to Matilda Brown A funny little girl next door We went to Brighton for the week We both toddled home once more My pals all met me in the pub Said a feller to me, "Watcha, Fred! What did you have for your honeymoon?" So, just for a lark I said Boiled beef and carrots Boiled beef and carrots That's the stuff for your 'darby-kell' Makes you fat and it keeps you well Don't live like vegetarians On food they give to parrots The Wife of mine looks fit and fine On boiled beef and carrots Now, we've got a lodger, he's an artful cove "I'm very, very queer," he said We sent for the doctor, he came round And told him to jump in bed The poor chap said, "I do feel bad" Then Mother with a tear replied Said "What would you like for a pick-me-up?" He jumped out of bed and cried Boiled beef and carrots Boiled beef and carrots That's the stuff for your 'darby-kell' Makes you fat and it keeps you well Don't live like vegetarians On food they give to parrots Blow out your kite from morn' till night On boiled beef and carrots I am the Father of a lovely pair of nippers And they're nice fed boys They're twins, you can't tell which is which Like a pair of saveloys We had them christened in the week The Parson put them on his knee I said, "As they've both got ginger hair, I want their names to be" Boiled beef and carrots Boiled beef and carrots That's the stuff for your 'darby-kell' Makes you fat and it keeps you well Don't live like vegetarians On food they give to parrots Gentiles and yids, bring up your kids On boiled beef and carrots Boiled beef and carrots Boiled beef and carrots That's the stuff for your 'darby-kell' Makes you fat and it keeps you well Don't live like vegetarians On food they give to parrots Gentiles and yids, bring up your kids On boiled beef and carrots (Contributed by =Ae= - April 2010) (Updated by Mel Priddle - January 2016)
