Take a look at poor old Timothy McKay
Just a bag of bones poor geezer ,
Sitting in the boozer with a stale pork pie
'Cos his wife has gone and bought a bloody freezer
Oh My TimothyMcKay , Once eleven stone now he's a six stone guy
Dreaming of a supper with some hot roast beef
But its parcelled up in polythene and froxen stiff .

Thats the first voice - Surely it must ring a bell with someone ??

I remember the song. It featured on a BBC World Series programme on signs of the zodiac (Libra, I think it was) It ends up

"no-one's seen her for a while
cos she's lying in the freezer with an ice-cold smile"

I STILL dont know where I got this from , but here are the Lyrics as I have them !

Take a look at poor old Timothy Mckay
Just a bag of bones , poor geezer
Sitting in the boozer with a stale pork pie
'Cos his wife has gone and bought a bloody freezer
Oh My Timothy McKay
Pain in his belly and a tear in his eye
Dreaming of a supper with some hot roast beef
But its parcelled up in Polythene and frozen stiff

Marilyn McKay has got the freezer craze
Nothing short of hundredweights will please her
Whole sheep half pigs set her eyes ablaze
My God its so much cheaper with a freezer
Oh My Timothy McKay
Thinking how he'd like to be eating bye and bye
He'd settle for a curry and some pilau rice
But its buried in the freezer and as cold as ice

Timothy is sent to spend his long weekends
Picking pounds of berries to appease her
Then he begs a scrap or two from sympathetic friends
While she's baking fifty tarts to fill the freezer
Oh My Timothy McKay
Once eleven stone , now he's a six stone guy
Chewing on his fingernails , tossing in his sleep
Dreaming of the goodies in the ice cold deep

Timothy gets desperate and one dark night
He takes her by the throat and starts to squeeze her
While she's lying senseless on the living room floor
He's ripping out the contents of the freezer
Oh My Timothy McKay
Fat and happy now for he's been eating for a while
The neighbours think his wife has gone and left him high and dry
But she's lying in the freezer with an ice cold smile

It was written by the (sadly) late Alex Glasgow, the marvellous Tyneside songwriter who also came up with All In A Day and As Soon As This Pub Closes, among many others. It featured in a show he did with the writer Henry Livings, called Northern Drift, which I was lucky enough to see at a Durham Folk Festival many years ago.

You may also remember Alex Glasgow's voice, as he performed the Tyneside song Dance To Thi Daddy(/i> as the theme tune to the period Geordie soap opera "When The Boat Comes In," starring James Bolam and Louise Jameson.

Why do I remember all this, but I can't remember why I switched the computer on?
