It’s Rationed!

Chorus 1
I can’t have any more biscuits,
I can’t have any more ham,
I can’t have any more sugar,
I can’t have any more spam,
I can’t have any more butter,
I can’t have any more jam,
I can’t have any more bacon,
Why? Because it’s rationed!

 

V1
Queuing at the corner shop we show our ration book,
Stretch it out with recipes that tell us what to cook.
I help grow some vegetables at home here with my Mum,
Chickens lay their eggs which give us extra for my tum!

 

Chorus 2
I can’t have any more coffee,
I can’t have any more tea,
I can’t have any more tinned fruit,
I can’t have any more cheese,
I can’t have any more cornflakes,
I can’t have any more sweets,
I can’t have any more dried eggs,
Why? Because it’s rationed!

 

V2
Let’s make do with what we have and eat what’s on our plate,
For the country to survive we will not hesitate.
Share the food out carefully as waste is not allowed,
Helping Britain win the war, yes that’s what makes us proud!

 

Chorus 1
I can’t have any more butter,
I can’t have any more jam,
I can’t have any more bacon,
Why? Because it’s rationed!

 

Why? Because it’s rationed!
