Christmas Pudding


Weigh it all and warm the fruit

Then stir me slowly, and add silver loot

Now mix the sugar, flour and fat

And add the fruit, more nuts, all that


Grease the basin and line it right

Tip me in and wrap me tight

Then gently steam me till I’m done

And now I’m ready, pudding number one


To serve me put me on a plate

With a sprig of holly and an extra date

With custard or cream – it’s all the same

And darling, don’t forget to light my flame
