Joe Wood sold pies during the 1930s and 1940s in Ashton Under Lyne. Whilst this is long before my time, the quality of his merchandise lives on in the songs below:
To the tune of "Knees Up Mother Brown"And to the tune of the old Hymn
We hate Joe Wood's piesNow at last my life is over
We hate Joe Wood's piesAnd it's time for me to die
Watch your cats and dogs and fliesThe doctor said "What have you eaten?"
Or else he'll have 'em in his piesI had to say a Joe Woods pie
We hate Joe Wood's pies
They were known as Joe Wood's killers ! If only I could have tasted one !
