JELLIED EELS (Lionel Bart) Joe Brown - 1960 Now ever since I was a mite I've 'ad a whackin' appetite My 'ollerin' for dinner would raise the rafters I'd swallow me befores as well as me afters Till one sunny afternoon They bunged something in me spoon And I'm sure it must 'ave been ever since then That I've 'ad an irresistible yen.....For Jellied eels, jellied eels Wogg-a-ling about like wonky wheels Why d'ya frown and look so sickly Slide 'em down your throat and quickly Don't bring up any empty cup Though I knows just how ya feels When you gets the taste, you won't wanna waste Them lovely jellied eels Now, winkles and shrimps are fine I've flogged 'em since the age of nine I used to jog along with me two-wheeled barra But there was somethin' wrong, there was somethin' the matter I'd no jellied eels on show No wonder they didn't wanna know I went out, bought a load, piled 'em up in a pile And people could smell me coming a mile.....Off! Oh, jellied eels, jellied eels Wogg-a-ling about like wonky wheels Why d'ya frown and look so sickly Slide 'em down your throat and quickly Don't bring up any empty cup Though I knows just how ya feels When you gets the taste, you won't wanna waste Them lovely jellied eels All together now..... Jellied eels, jellied eels Wogg-a-ling about like wonky wheels Why d'ya frown and look so sickly Slide 'em down your throat and quickly Don't bring up any empty cup Though I knows just how ya feels When you gets the taste you won't wanna waste Them lovely jellied eels SPOKEN: It's alright for you missus. I come down 'ere on a Saturday morning. What do I get? Kids! Nippers, chavvies, all round me stall. Rotten, filthy, dirty, stinkin', jammy, chocolaty fingers all over me jellied eels. Not to mention me whelks, me cockles and me mussels, and me lovely jellied eels! It's alright for you, well I'll tell ya somethin..... (Jellied eels, jellied eels) (Wogg-a-ling about like wonky wheels) (Why d'ya frown and look so sickly) (Slide 'em down your throat and quickly) (Don't bring up any empty cup) (Though I knows just how ya feels) (When you gets the taste, you won't wanna waste) (Them lovely jellied eels) (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - June 2009)
