Subject: Lyr Add: PASS! SHOOT! GOAL! (from Gracie Fields)

You can play or download this song at The Internet Archive. It's song #2 on that page. Here's my transcription: (As usual, I have omitted the patter.) If you can explain (or correct) the line "Humpty Dumpty right up the sausage roll" I'd appreciate it.

Words and music by Robert Hargreaves, Stanley J Damerell & Harry Tilsley.
As sung by Gracie Fields, 1931.

In my home town, in my home town, ev'ryone's a football fan.
When their team goes to face its foes, the lads go with it to a man.
It keeps a player's heart up, does his own supporters' cheers,
When teams delight to bark an' bite an' chew each other's ears.

CHORUS: Football, football, sends them up the pole.
You'll hear their gentle voices calling, "Pass! Shoot! Goal!"
Humpty Dumpty(?) right up the sausage roll(?)
You'll 'ear their gentle voices calling, "Pass! Shoot! Goal!"
The poor referee is kicked by three or four
Right between his whistle and the halftime score.
Squeaking, shrieking with all their 'eart an' soul,
You'll 'ear their angel voices calling, "Pass! Shoot! Goal!"

In my home town, in my home town, half the folks are wearin' black.
When our team goes to face its foes, the best part of 'em don't come back.
In hobnail boots they do or die. More of 'em die than do.
Their football shirts are black an' red, their faces black an' blue.

I heard/saw Barbara Snape deliver a wonderful version of this at a concert in the Fire Station at Alcester festival last year. She and Peter have a website here .
