It was written and recorded by Dave Paskett - who is no longer performing. It can be found on his LP - Pasketry. Dave was from Bristol originally.
Dave is now a very successful Painter and Artist.
I do still own a copy of the original LP and I also have a Digital copy (Mp3) copy o the song.

The song title really is - The Butcher and His Wife
LP issued in 1979 - not sure of the label, but have looked online and it is still available.....

George Henderson of Bray Singers and Goilin Traditional Singers' Club sings a great version of this one.

As I recall, Dave wrote it as an entry in a songwriting competition sponsored by Matthesons which had to include Haslett OR polony OR black pudding OR brawn. Dave went the whole hog - as it were!

Well. I got it from the late Niall Timmins who got it from Dave. The way I heard it the song was written in response to the constant radio airing of Scarborough fair and Dave jokingly referred to it as the "Carnivores answer to Scarborough Fair."

A romantic song I try to sing around Valentines day.

I also have a copy of Dave's LP given to me by John Waltham.
