Subject: Lyr Add: ENGLISH MUFFINS AND IRISH STEW
I must admit this is one of the stupidest songs I've transcribed.


ENGLISH MUFFINS AND IRISH STEW
Words by Bob Hilliard, music by Moose Charlap.
As recorded by Sylvia Syms, 1956.

You'd never think they'd go together, but they certainly do:
The combination of English muffins and Irish stew.
I must admit that they're quite delicious and so easy to chew:
The combination of English muffins and Irish stew.

I've tried macaroni and Spanish rice.
That's not so very nice.
That's not so very nice.
I've tried French pancakes with German sauerkraut,
But that's one dish I'd do without.

You'd never think they'd go together, but they certainly do.
The combination of English muffins and Irish stew.
The Mexican army has eaten salami and onions from Peru,
But it don't compare with English muffins and Irish stew.

The English and the Irish have been firish(?) now and then,
'Cause the Irish think that they can knock the stuffin'
Out of any old English muffin.

So you'd never think they'd go together, but they certainly do:
The combination of English muffins and Irish stew.

I've tried sukiyaki in Labrador,
And I don't want no more.
No, I don't want no more.
I've tried hot tamale with Turkish shish kebab,
But I prefer corn on the cob.

You'd never think they'd go together, but they certainly do:
The combination of English muffins and Irish stew.
The Mexican army has eaten salami and onions from Peru,
But it don't compare with English muffins and Irish stew.
No, it don't compare with English muffins and Irish stew.
