Jellied Eels

Joe Brown


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)
