Smithfield Market

Boiled beef and carrots - haha! That was much better, though, than the potato salad song I heard over at Slum

When I was a nipper, only six months old, my mother and my father too,
They didn't know what to wean me on, they were both in a dreadful stew.
They thought of tripe, they thought of steak, or a little bit of old cod's roe,
Ma said, "Pop round to the old cook shop, I know what'll make him grow:"

"Boiled beef and carrots, boiled beef and carrots.
That's the stuff for your 'Darby Kell', makes you fat, and it keeps you well.
Don't live like vegetarians, on food they give to parrots,
From morn till night, blow out your 'kite' on boiled beef and carrots! "

And the twins "like a pair of Saveloys"! My father had a whole bunch of songs like this in his repertoire ...

Hilarious song, except now it's going to be stuck in my head the next couple of days, you may owe me a drink or three for this!
