BANGERS AND MASH
Words by Herbert Kretzmer ; music by Dave Lee.
As recorded by Peter Sellers and Sophia Loren, 1961

I met her down in Napoli and didn't she look great!
And so I brought her back to Blighty just to show me mates;
And though we're married happily, I'll tell you furthermore,
I haven't had a decent meal since nineteen forty-four.

—Eat your minestrone, Joe. —That's all you ever say.
—Eat your macaroni, Joe. —Ev'ry blinking day.
—No wonder you're so bony, Joe, and skinny as a rake.
—Well then, give us a bash at the bangers and mash me mother used to make.

Bangers and mash! —Minestrone!
—Bangers and mash! —Macaroni!
—Give us a bash at the bangers and mash me mother used to make.

—Eat your tagliatelle, Joe. —That's all I've heard for years.
—Eat your vermicelli, Joe. —It's coming out me ears.
—You've got to fill your belly Joe; Joe, for heaven's sake!
—Well then, give us a bash at the bangers and mash me mother used to make.

Bangers and mash! —Tagliatelle!
—Bangers and mash! —Vermicelli!
—Oh, give us a bash at the bangers and mash me mother used to make.
