THE WHELK SONG (West / Reine) Billy Cotton & His Band (vocals: Alan Breeze & Doreen Stephens) STEPHENS: Alive-alive-o, alive-alive-o, singing cockles and mussels, alive- alive-o BREEZE: If you don't want the whelks don't muck `em abaht If you don't want `em other people may" There's a fellow you should meet, runs a fish shop down our street He wraps it up in paper every day When they're crowding round the stall, he addresses one and al And this is what you'll always hear him say" Nah, if you don't want the whelks don't muck `em abaht And take yer baby's fingers off the slab (They're covered in chocolate!) Lovely two eyed kippers, take `em for the nippers Take a hake or a nice cod steak Soles and eels for the old man's meals They're lovely they're all fresh in today So if you don't want the whelks don't muck `em abaht If you don't want `em other people may (Orchestral Break) (SPOKEN) STEPHENS: Ooh! Mum, can I have some winkles? BREEZE: Them's not winkles, dearie, them's whelks STEPHENS: Well, can I have some whelks then? BREEZE: No you can't! You'll only swallow `em, shells an' all. Now look what happened the other day. Your father and I were just in time to stop you swallowing the front wheel of a steam roller. STEPHENS: Why don't I keep my big mouth shut! BILLY COTTON: Nah then Missus. Do you want these `ere whelks, cos they're lovely BREEZE: If you don't want the whelks don't muck `em abaht And move yer pram and let the others in (You're blocking the doorway) Lovely two eyed kippers, take `em for the nippers Take a hake or a nice cod steak Roes or trout for the old man's gout They're lovely, they're all fresh in today So if you don't want the whelks don't muck `em abaht If you don't want `em other people may (Orchestral Break) BREEZE: All nice and juicy STEPHENS: Alive-alive-o, alive-alive-o, singing cockles and mussels, alive- alive-o
