Don’t put sugar in the gravy
Or put pepper in the tea,
And if you make an old shoe pie -
Well don’t give some to me.
Don’t put mustard in the custard
Or hot curry in the cake
And don’t you offer me snake stew,
I’d much prefer some steak.
Don’t put treacle on my fish and chips,
Or on my good roast beef
And please don’t give me chewy things -
This Gran has lost her teef!
