FISH AND CHIPS From "Charlie Girl" (John Taylor / David Heneker) Joe Brown Also recorded by: Paul Nicholas; Jack Wild. My Uncle `Enry's got a shop down the `Igh Street With marble on the counter and a big glass door My Uncle `Enry's very famous down the `Igh Street So let me tell you what `e's very famous for. `E found one day `is customers was getting' thin They'd pass `'is fish and chip shop but they'd not go in So Uncle stepped outside, threw back `is `ead and cried In a voice as loud as sin……….Oh `Addock or Cod or Sprats or `Ake, Filleted Dover Sole Kippers or Scampi, Plaice or Skate, Mackerel by the shoal I tell yer ev'rythin's fresh and newly fried `Ot to the finger tips, You've never eaten till you've tried Ol' `Enry's Fish and Chips! Oi! Well, Uncle `Enry soon attracted a crowd there, All sorts of funny people like you never saw! But when they `eard me Uncle shoutin' out aloud there, They come to see what all the blinkin' noise was for. From Acton Town to `Ackney Wick an' all around, They flocked to Uncle's like it was a football ground. A fish `e didn't sell, but still they paid `im well, Just to `ear `is great new sound……….Oh! `Addock or Cod or Sprats or `Ake, Filleted Dover Sole Kippers or Scampi, Plaice or Skate, Mackerel by the shoal I tell yer ev'rythin's fresh and newly fried `Ot to the finger tips, You've never eaten till you've tried Ol' `Enry's Fish and Chips! Oi! Soon Uncle `Enry was a signin' a contract For `alf a dozen records an' TV an' all; Not only that, but someone else `ad bin in contact An' offered him a concert at the Albert `All But Uncle wasn't bothered by `is rise to fame. `E kept `is fish and chip shop going just the same, Though NOW `e made `is cash, at `alf a crown a bash, Singin' out `is old refrain……….Oh! `Addock or Cod or Sprats or `Ake, Filleted Dover Sole Kippers or Scampi, Plaice or Skate, Mackerel by the shoal I tell yer ev'rythin's fresh and newly fried `Ot to the finger tips, You've never eaten till you've tried Ol' `Enry's Fish and Chips! Oi! Now Uncle `Enry's clientele, they inform us, Includes eleven Ministers an' one MP. Dukes and their Duchesses in numbers quite enormous, An' chinless Debs `oo dend you up the family tree! When questioned by reporters on `is great success `E never makes a speech, `e Merely says "I guess It's just because me voice is everybody's choice Would you like to `ear it?" ………Yes! (Joe: Spoken – "I thought you might") `Addock or Cod or Sprats or `Ake, Filleted Dover Sole Kippers or Scampi, Plaice or Skate, Mackerel by the shoal I tell yer ev'rythin's fresh and newly fried Hot to the finger tips, You've never eaten till you've tried Ol' `Enry's Fish and Chips! Oi! (Fast) `Addock or Cod or Sprats or `Ake, Filleted Dover Sole Kippers or Scampi, Plaice or Skate, Mackerel by the shoal I tell yer ev'rythin's fresh and newly fried Hot to the finger tips, You've never eaten till you've tried Ol' `Enry's Fish and Chips! Oh! Ev'rythings fresh and newly fried Hot to the finger tips. You've never eaten, Never, ever eaten, Till you've tried those can't be beaten, Uncle `Enry's Fish and Chips.
