Bert Hansell Lyr Req: winkle pick song (2) RE: winkle pick song 28 Feb 97


Here's all that I can remember from the way that my Mother used to sing it.

I know she used to sing a first verse about saving her money to go and buy the winkles in the first place.

She used to tell us how, when she was a kid she used to take all of the winkles out of their shells first before eating them. Then her brothers used to come along and take them from her.

Picking all the big ones out

Picking all the big ones out

You should see face all wrinkled

when I saw my penn'oth o' winkles

All the big ones gone

it made me holler and shout

There was old Aunt Rose

with her finger up her nose

Picking all the big ones out.
