    SPUDS

    Spuds Spuds Spuds Spuds

    The magnificent spud so underrated so misunderstood
    From the table of the gentry , bone china silver spoon
    To the simple peasant , flat cap , brown ale , whippet howling at the moon


    Spuds Spuds Spuds Spuds


    Boiled , roasted , mashed , baked or chips
    The humble spud a pleasure for the lips
    From the north to the south , the east to the west
    We know what we love the best

    Spuds Spuds Spuds Spuds



    For those who talk but never listen the wise men and the fools
    For the lawmakers and those who break the rules
    All the little children , the old and unsteady
    Waiting to hear the magic words , dinner is ready


    Spuds Spuds Spuds Spuds




    Recorded by Paul Gascoigne accompanied by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and the Galley Boy Choir

    My amateur attempt at verse came about from reading a study from Otago NZ. By eating more fibre we can increase our life span , protect the heart , avoid diabetes and many other benefits which I cannot remember now.
    Spuds are a great form of fibre but they must be cooked and eaten with the skin left on. Other foods rich in fibre are wholemeal bread , brown rice and pasta , nuts , fruit and veg.

    It is advisable to always peel bananas , oranges and coconuts before eating them.
    Hope you were a better steward than you are a poet Jim.

    Hi Louis.
    My wife and I have a big bowl of wedges up the club once a week, whole spuds with skins on; quartered and deep fried, beside that we have spuds most days, not doing to bad at 82 and 86. As the saying goes, a spud a day keeps the Lord away.
    Cheers Des
