Subject: Lyr Add: STOP AND SHOP AT THE CO-OP SHOP (Fields)
From: Jim Dixon
Date: 03 Mar 11 - 10:37 PM

From the recording at YouTube:

[In this song, "co-op" is pronounced "cwop."]

Words and music by Harris Weston, 1930.
As sung by Gracie Fields

1. There's a shop called the Co-op in the high street.
By gum, it's a great idea!
For out of what you spend, you get a dividend
Three times ev'ry year.
When Ma takes two shillings for a share,
She shouts, feeling like a millionaire, she does:

CHORUS: Stop and shop at the Co-op, the Co-op Shop.
What a shop is the Co-op, the Co-op Shop!
You can buy from a choc to prop or a mop
Or a bottle of ginger pop at the Co-op Shop.
As the pop shop is next to the Co-op Shop,
When you've done your popping in the pop shop,
You hop out of the pop shop and pop into the Co-op Shop.
A proper shop to shop at is the Co-op Shop.

2. They have tripe nice and ripe at the Co-op Shop.
Pink pills, powder puffs, pork pies.
Paraffin and jam, carbolic soap and ham,
Clothes pegs and glass eyes,
And pigs-heads all grinning in a row.
Will you join in this chorus sweet and low?
Sweet and low, sweet and low!


[I see the Co-op Shop is still thriving in Britain but they've gone for the corporate look and are now called The Co-operative.]

Fascinating that this urban topical song survived to be recorded.
