HOT MEAT PIES, SAVELOYS AND TROTTERS

Now Mrs Potter's got a shop in our localitee
She'll serve you with a supper a good dinner or a tea
There's everything you fancy from a salmon to a sav.
But when the wife and I go there I'll tell you what we have,

Chorus: Hot meat pies, saveloys and trotters
Something you can talk about
Something that will blow you out
Every time we went to supper round at Mrs Potter's
We had hot meat pies, saveloys and trotters.


Once I went to church I did, while I was sitting there
The parson in the pulpit went and offered up a prayer
As I was busy wondering what he'd be doing next
He said 'This Sunday, brethren, i'm taking for my text,

Chorus: Hot meat pies, saveloys and trotters
Study little Mary do, so I say to all of you
Everyone should go to supper round at Mrs Potter's
And have hot meat pies, saveloys and trotters.'


Once a crowd of suffragettes were talking in the park
Your 'umble thought he'd like to go and hear them for a lark
'What is it that we women want?' one of the ladies cried
I popped my napper up amongst the crowd and I replied,

Chorus: 'Hot meat pies, saveloys and trotters
Don't keep shouting for a vote
Ram a trotter down your throat
Everyone should go to supper round at Mrs Potter's
And have hot meat pies, saveloys and trotters.'


Now when our triplets came to town it was a funny thing
Three golden sovereigns came along, a present from the King
I took 'em to be christened, the clergyman exclaimed
'Oh what a funny triplet' when I said they're to be named,

Chorus: 'Hot meat pies, saveloys and trotters.'
I said to him, 'Do not pause, name them just like that, because
Everytime we went to supper round at Mrs Potter's
We have hot meat pies, saveloys and trotters.'
