Lyrics:
Warm and Toasty
Chorus
We've all got a tale to tell
Times were not always so well
But putting it all aside
We made it through by and by

Verse 1
It’s warm and toasty in here
Share our laughter, sometimes tears
You'll be welcomed with a cup of tea
And a biscuit, maybe two or three

Verse 2
Wrapped in a little white cloth
Cooking for hours in the old iron pot
There’s a jam roly poly for tea
Enough for you & dad & grandma & me

Break
What did we like the most
a fish paste sandwich
or peas on toast
And nothing could come close
To bubble and squeak
the day after our Sunday roast

Chorus
We've all got a tale to tell
Times were not always so well
But putting it all aside
We made it through by and by

Verse 3
The treat of the day from Mum
A whole penny to buy a bun
Dad was a warden for the ARP
In his shadow & old tin hat
Dennis would be

Verse 4
Porridge on the menu for Jan the Nan
Porridge again, again & again
But what were you gonna do
With a family of twenty-two

Verse 5
Waiting for Sunday tea
Freddie the Shrimp man, what will it be
Herrings, winkles and whelks
From his barrow of the sea

Chorus
We've all got a tale to tell
Times were not always so well
But putting it all aside
We made it through by and by

Instrumental… La La La Laaala

Repeat Verse 1
It’s warm and toasty in here
Share our laughter, sometimes tears
You'll be welcomed with a cup of tea
And a biscuit, maybe two…
Maybe two or three
