Lyr Req: ....and chips

Jacqui and Bridie used to do a song about chips with everything.
It included things like "we had beans and chips, sardines and chips, roast leg of pork with gold apple sauce gravy and greens and chips.."
"Rice and chips, vanilla ice and chips, curried eels in sauce with lots of spice and chips..."
Anyone have all the words?

Are you thinking of the song entitled "Snack Attack"?

That's a blast from the past Irene! Takes me right back to my Liverpool university days.

I can't recall the song you mentioned but Jacqui has a website with CDs for sale and a contact address.

Sorry "Peace", I ignored you. Very rude of me.
Doesn't sound like it to me.

"And for the piece de resistance, we have chips and chips."

Didn't mean it to sound like that, Irene.

I have been looking and looking. Also finding nowt. I think it will have to be gleaned from

1) someone who knows it
2) someone's CD or record

However, I just e-mailed Ms McDonald and I will let you know when and if.

Many years ago, I watched a live British variety show, where a couple of Canadian(I think) Ladies sang a hilarious song about the then staple of British cuisine - CHIPS! Would love the entire lyrics, if anyone has them. It had a prelude where the girls went to a restaraunt and asked what there was to eat, and got the response:

'We've got Beans and CHIPS,
Sardines and CHIPS,
da-da da-da da-da da-a and CHIPS,
we've got eggs and CHIPS
Frogs leg's and CHIPS

and so on, finally down to

CHIPS and CHIPS!

Anybody help?

Is that anything like "Spam, Spam, Spam, baked beans, Spam, Spam, and Spam"?

Somewhere there is an earlier thread about this song, that I started and Peace took up.
Jacqui & Bridie used to do this song.
Still hoping to extact the words from Jacqui!
Threads combined.

The song was i believe written by the late Vera Johnson.
