AN N'EGG AND SOME N'HAM AND AN N'ONION

Some people like bacon for breakfast
Now that is the usual dish.
While others like porridge, bananas and tripe
And some folk would rather 'ave fish.
But I've got a dish of my own
The finest that I've ever known.

Chorus: An n'egg and some n'ham and an n'onion
An n'egg and some n'ham and an n'onion
Oh, what a sight to see,
Spread on a plate with a nice cup o' tea.
An n'egg and some n'mam and an n'onion
To some folk it's rather a funny 'n
All the world over, it's praise should be sung
A lovely creation for making you young
Now what did Charles Peace eat the morn 'e was 'ung?
Why, an n'egg and some n'ham and an n'onion.

'Twas Christmas day inside the work'ouse,
'Twas Christmas in our 'ouse as well.
The inmates were 'aving a party, and so,
A foreman jumped up with a yell.
Keep your Christmas pudding' said 'e,
There's only one thing pleases me.

Chorus: An n'egg and some n'ham and an n'onion
An n'egg and some n'ham and some n'onion
Oh, what a sight to see,
Spread on a plate with a nice cup o' tea.
An n'egg and some n'mam and an n'onion
To some folk it's rather a funny 'n.
Without any doubt, it's the best of the bunch.
You can eat it for breakfast or dinner or lunch.
For what gave Joe Peck that sledge-'ammer punch
It's an n'egg and some n'ham and an n'onion

Chorus: An n'egg and some n'ham and an n'onion
An n'egg and some n'ham and an n'onion
Oh, what a sight to see,
Spread on a plate with a nice cup o' tea.
An n'egg and some n'mam and an n'onion
To some folk it's rather a funny 'n
All the world over, it's praise should be sung
It's such a creation for making you young
Now what did Charles Peace eat the morn 'e was 'ung?
Why, an n'egg and some n'ham and an n'onion.
