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.

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!
