Subject: Lyr Add: Kippers Song
From: GUEST,Trumponeman (Non member)
Date: 27 Apr 14 - 10:35 AM

Hi Mudcat folks,I'd be most grateful if you could help me find the remaining lyrics to this British comic music hall song:

Chorus:
Aye, aye, aye,
Kippers a penny-a-pair
Bloaters three for tupence,
You can get them anywhere
The cheapest place to get 'em
Is down the Old Kent Road
And when you go by, you get a black eye
And a punch on top of the nose

Thank you GUEST. That's an interesting song that has 'kippers' and the 'Old Kent Road' in it but it's not the one I was looking for. Thank you anyway

It isn't the song in question, but Googling for "kippers a penny a pair" brings up an interesting article titled 'Awkins at 'Ome. Worth a read.

Thanks for that Joe. Like the article the song certainly has a Cockney feel. Thank you too GUEST for your persistence - it must be out there somewhere.

Just wondering if this thread should be retitled "Music hall song about Kippers" - so as to make clear it's not a song from the Kipper Family?!

Kitty

Subject: RE: Norf and Sarf - cockney songs

I have snatches of lyrics in my head but can't place the song:

"aye, aye, aye, kippers a penny-a-pair
(bloaters?) three for tupence, you can get them anywhere
the best place in London is down on donkey (row/road?)
and when you go by, you get a black eye and a punch on top of the nose".

Any help would be appreciated

Please e-mail me at joycealex@yahoo.com

Thanks.

Aye Aye Aye kippers a penny a pair
Bloaters three for tuppence
You get them anywhere
The cheapest place in London
Is down the Old Kent Road
And when yo get there
You get a black eye and a punch on top of the nose.
These the words my Mum and Nan sang at Family parties and taught me I have passed them on to my Daughter and Granddaughter who is 15yrs old.
I am 70 now and never heard any more verses .Would love to know if there are.

Will you come to the Mission will you come,
bring your own cup and saucer and a bun.
Charlie Chaplin will be there
selling kippers, penny a pair
Will you come to the Mission will you come.
