Pat Shortt – Jumbo Breafast Roll anyone?

Had to post this up, on one hand in case I lose the link, on the other hand that it should be shared with everyone! If this gets released as a single you know it’ll be huge. It’s a SMIL clip direct from RTE of Pat Shortt’s recent interview on the Late Late Show which includes the ‘Jumbo Breakfast Roll‘ performance.

Click here for Pat Shortt’s Jumbo Breakfast Roll or why not get the MP3 version?

You want the lyrics… here’s they are…

Well I wake up in the morning and I jump straight out of bed
Grab a hold of that luminous jacket and shake that fuzzy head
I don’t have time for a fancy breakfast or put muesli in a bowl
I just head to the stat oil garage for the jumbo breakfast Roll

Two eggs two rasher two sausage two Bacon Two puddins one Black and white
All placed like a tower on top of each other and then wrapped up good and tight
If you¹re having some tea the milks over there and you’ll find sugar in the bowl
Says she Do you want some sauce on that says I, I do in my roll

Well whether you¹re a chippie or a sparkie or a brikie or a team just tarring the road.
Or a shower of lads coming home from the razz with a crowd or on your own
If you’re working up a ladder or peeling pigs bladder or find yourself digging in a hole
There’s no sight better than melting butter, from a jumbo breakfast roll

Two eggs two rasher two sausage two Bacon Two puddins one Black and white
All placed like a tower on top of each other and then wrapped up good and tight
If you¹re having some tea the milks over there and you’ll find sugar in the bowl
Says she Do you want some sauce on that says I, I do in my roll

Well just the other day after me roll and tea, in me gut I got an awful ache
I went to me Doctor he said that’s an artery blocker you have every morning at break
So to change my lifestyle he has me walking five miles and seeing a dietician called Noel
But I can’t get from my head the sight of two runny eggs on my Jumbo breakfast roll

Two eggs two rasher two sausage two Bacon Two puddins one Black and white
All placed like a tower on top of each other and then wraped up good and tight
If you¹re having some tea the milks over there and you’ll find sugar in the bowl
Says she Do you want some sauce on that says I, I do in my roll

Well the years have passed on and my life has changed and now I am a different man
I have lost three stone, I’m doing a line with a girl and we are both Vegetarian
My cholesterol is low and my heart is good to go, but in the morning I’d sell my soul
To sit in any stat oil fore court and devour a Jumbo breakfast roll

Two eggs two rasher two sausage two Bacon Two puddins one Black and white
All placed like a tower on top of each other and then wraped up good and tight
If you’re having some tea the milks over there and you¹ll find sugar in the bowl
Says she Do you want some sauce on that says I, I do in my roll

Finish!

    that’ll do the job will, good man yerself!

  • Will O’ Brien

    Not a bother Ken!!

  • b

    WHY DOES HE SAY TWO RASHER AND TWO BACON??? ITS THE SAME? MAYBE HE SAYS TWO HASHERS AS IN HASH BROWN???

  • http://www.kenmc.com Ken

    no, its rashers and bacon alright. he’s been interviewed about it a few times now at this stage and his reply has been

    “lads, its only a song…”

    poetic license ;)

  • b

    Maybe he could change the lyrics and give me a few quid…..

  • http://www.kenmc.com Ken

    all you can you is ask! ;)

  • Gav

    Anyone know the guitar chords?

  • Do

    Any have a stab at teh guitar chords yet?..shouldn’t be too difficult…

  • Do

    snap Gav!

  • http://www.kenmc.com Ken

    Weird! Snap indeed!

    You try pulling the guitar chords by watching the video from the link above?

  • Gav

    that’s mad. i think we both probably googled for “jumbo breakfast roll” chords and found ourselves here.

    I *think* it’s something like G C D G, but i can’t really hear it properly.

  • http://www.kenmc.com Ken

    It should be… I was thinking C, F, G by the sound of it, its based around a 3 chord trick anyway, whatever key you decide to play it in…!

  • Do

    yea – just watched it there – looks like he’s doing the c,f & g….but like you said – play in whatever key suits you…..it will be a nice party piece after the pub!!

  • Gav

    the video won’t work for me here for some reason (i’m on a mac and the video is trying to open in adobe go live, and i can’t open it directly in real player), but anyway, C F G C do seem like the right chords. nice work lads. Cheers

  • kaka

    does anyone know where you can get jon/john kenny’s version of stan??? legandary bt cant find it anywhere

    Hi All,
    I have changed the words to Jumbo Breakfast Roll for a Celtic party.
    Enjoy!

    JUMBO PAIN IN ME HOLE!

    When I wake up in the mornin’
    and again I’ve pished the bed,
    I grab a hould of me ‘luminous jacket and shake off my ould porter head
    I cant afford toothpaste cos ive been ten years on the dole
    And I work as a steward at Ibrox and Ive got a jumbo pain in my hole.
    CHORUS
    Cos we’ve got,
    No Strikers,
    No Goalie,
    No Midfield,
    We look stupid in blue and white,
    And no matter who we play or if the referees a hun we still end up playin shite,
    When we play in Europe were always getting humped from Spain to the North Pole,
    That is why Im now supporting Hearts, Ive got a jumbo pain in me hole.

    Now ive got friends that are are chippies and welders and one who guards a building site,
    But they all got those jobs by rolling up there trouser leg every Wednesday night
    We always meet in the Orange Hall to watch the Rangers game unfold,
    But lately Ive been going home with a jumbo pain in me hole!

    Repeat chorus

    Now the just the other day I was passing a car when I saw a scarfe inside,
    It had Rangers colours on the front and Hearts on the other side,
    So when noone was looking I took a swing and smashed the window with a pole,
    Then I realised that it was my own car now Ive a jumbo pain in me hole!

    Repeat chorus.

    Now the years have moved on
    And my life has changed and now Im a different man,
    I spent the last two years doin time and Im no longer a Rangers fan,
    I realised when I was inside that most Rangers fans have no soul,
    So ive got a job at Parkhead, support the bhoys and lost that jumbo pain in my hole!

    CHORUS 2
    Cos weve got the best strikers and goalie a brilliant midfield, we look amazing in green and white,
    And Rangers couldnt beat us even if we played them all night,
    And when we play away in Europe everybody hates to see us go,
    And it makes me laugh to see a Rangers fan with a jumbo pain in his hole!

    Repeat Chorus 2

    Neil O’Martin February 2006

  • Laura Murphy

    ‘If your working up a ladder or peeling a pig’s bladder or find yourself digging in a hole.

  • David Kavanagh

    i think that it goes like this.

    When I wake up in the mornin’
    And jump straight out of bed,
    I grab a hould of me ‘luminous jacket and shake off my ould porter head
    I haven’t time for the fancy breakfast
    Or put muesli in the bowl
    I just head to the statoil garage
    For the jumbo breakfast roll.

    Two egg,
    Two sausage,
    Two rashers,
    Two bacon,
    Two puddin’ – one black, one white.
    All stacked like a tower on top of each other
    And rolled up good and tight.
    If you’re havin some tea the milk’s over there
    You’ll find sugar in the bowl
    Says she “do you want some sauce on that”, says I “I do in my…. roll”

    Now whether you’re a chippy or a plumber or a brickie
    Or a team just startin to roll
    Or a shower of lads coming back from the race
    In the crowd or on you’re own
    If you’re workin’ up a ladder or
    apeelin’ pigs blader
    Or find yourself diggin’ in a hole
    There’s no sight better than meltin’ butter
    On the jumbo breakfast roll.

    Two egg,
    Two sausage,
    Two rashers,
    Two bacon,
    Two puddin’ – one black, one white.
    All stacked like a tower on top of each other
    And rolled up good and tight.
    If you’re havin some tea the milk’s over there
    You’ll find sugar in the bowl
    Says she “do you want some sauce on that”, says I “I do in my…. roll”

    Now the just the other day
    After me roll and me tae
    In me gut I got an awful ache
    Well I went to me doctor, says he “thats an artery blocker”
    You’re havin every morning for break…well i know theres too many words in that verse lads, wasn’t that fecking Bob Dillon in the name o’ god!
    So to change me lifestyle
    He had me walkin’ five mile
    And seein’ a dietician called Noel
    But hangin’ from me head theres only two runny eggs
    A jumbo breakfast roll!

    Two egg,
    Two sausage,
    Two rashers,
    Two bacon,
    Two puddin’ – one black, one white.
    All stacked like a tower on top of each other

    Now the years have moved on
    And my life has changed
    And now I’m a different man
    I’m after losing three stone
    Doin’ a line with a girl called joan
    And we’re both vegitari-ian
    Now my bloodsugar levels are good to go
    And my cholesteral is low
    Though in the mornin’ I’d sell my soul
    Just to sit outside any maxol, emo, statoil, shell or more….
