The Singing Postman was an excellent chronicler of norfolk rural life of the fifties and sixties, he wrote at least four excellent comic songs imo nicotine girl, my little miss from diss, was the bottom dropped out, mind your head bor.
he seems to be sneered at by one or two folk historians, who dwell on the fact he was not born in Norfolk, Smethurst was raised in Sheringham, Norfolk from the age of 11. His mother came from the nearby village of Stiffkey.
It is a pecuilarity of the uk folk revival that some people have to sneer at someone who has had commercial success, rather than judging him on the merits of his songwriting

I thought the title was a New Joisey, USA dialect and since Passover is coming and I was looking at a post about a passover song; I thought maybe it would be a song about all the bakers or shopkeepers in town observing the holiday and only supplying matzoh (crackers, unleavened bread)!!

Here are the lyrics:-

I'm a man who dunt complain,
Bowt the weather or the rain.
Find it make no difference ennyway.
But I hev but one regret
That I haven't mentioned yet,
Thass orl abowt the bread we git terday:
I kin git m'self a nice lobster
Or a nice broad apron carb.
When I'm a little bit hungry
A nice little herrin' I've had.
I kin git m'self a nice mushroom
Go along wi' eggs in bed.
I kin git m'self a nice mawther,
But I can't git m'self a nice loaf of bread.
No, I can't get m'self a nice loaf of bread.

In the country or the town
I've been fer miles arownd
Ter orl the local bakers I kin see.
But no matter where I go
The answer's allus no
When I ask them fer the bread
That used ter be.
I kin git m'self a nice dumplin'
Or a nice bramble pie.
Clams, cockles and sanfer
An' yew know I tell no lie.
I kin git m'self a nice partridge,
Or a nice ole hare instead.
I kin git m'self a nice corffin
But I can't git a nice loaf of bread. "No more yer kin"

I'm a discontented man
And I dunt quite understand,
Thass why I put this question ter yew:
In the world we live terday
Kin yew come ter me an' say
Jist why they make the bread the way they dew.
I kin git m'self a nice tarkey
Or a nice ole duck as well.
Where's there's chicken an' gravy
There's a most excitin' smell.
With a pin I kin tickle them winkles
But jist like I hev said
I kin git m'self a nice fewnral
But I can't git a nice loaf o' bread.
