Jam roly poly, treacle sponge And sticky toffee pudding head the top of my list But apple pie, rhubarb crumble Or a decent cheesecake are hard to resist Banana splits, eclairs or brownies Dumplings, nougat, cheese board or mousse Crème brûlée. Fruit cocktail. Yoghurt Serve it up and set me loose! Rice pudding, Christmas pudding Let me say it loud and clear Summer pudding, Eve's pudding Figgy pudding - bring it here Cottage pudding, Diplomat pudding Pancakes served throughout the year Plum pudding, mango pudding Put it on a plate and cheer Hasty pudding, Saxon pudding Vanilla pudding, chocolate pud Yorkshire pudding filled with treacle Make winter evenings warm and good Sussex Pond pudding, sweet biscotti Semolina (if that counts?!) Panna cotta, profiteroles Gâteaux. Meringues in any amount I guess spotted dick is a bit of a worry But to bread and butter pudding, I say "bring it on!" I could plan on a flan, or a lardy cake Or butter with glee my scone or scon' Mince pies, cobblers, baklavas, strudels Loaves and pastries - all tell a story Even blancmange has a heritage To match or beat our knickerbocker glory There's fruit tarts, jam tarts, custard tarts, egg tarts Milk tarts, cheese tarts, butter tarts too Tarts from Manchester, Liverpool and Bakewell French tarts, Jamaican tarts - to name but a few Buns from Chelsea, cakes from Eccles Wafers and muffins from all over the place Doughnuts filled with jam or chocolate Made to squirt on your shoulder or face Strawberries & Cream, Eton Mess Artic rolls and brandy snaps Trifles should always be trifled with If laced with sherry - it's a perfect nightcap Sorbets leave the palate tingling Fritters fritter your cares away Waffles and crêpes warm the spirit And sundaes are perfect for every day So, whatever we may call them - Be it puddings, sweets, desserts or afters They taste best when shared with company Served with a spoon, a smile and laughter
