We are the Bray’s Pie Consumption Society – auditions now open!

Thanks to Sarah Pettegree for the photo

Here is my Pie Spotify Playlist – any more to add?

This started with a a twitter conversation about the lovely pies made by the Bray’s Cottage, perfect pie people in Norfolk…. more information here.  They have obtained a little Italian truck that they have called the Pie Aggio.  Now I have a soft spot for an Ape Piaggio as they are everywhere in Puglia, the little bit of Southern Italy where I feel very much at home.  Since seeing pictures of the Pie Aggio a conversation has brewed about a version of the Italian job film; with the Pie Aggio as one of the stars.  I seem to remember somewhere a conversation about a dream Sarah had as well…oh gosh now I have a script developing in my head…

In the meantime the challenge was raised to rewrite the words for the ‘Italian Job song’.  So I had a bash and this is what I came up with (now modified after comments from @goodshoeday and @HuwSayer.

Auditions are now open; please add a comment below and upload your rendition to audio boo, you tube etc….

Not sure how he tune goes?  Go here [Ohh and the word ruddy is used in its Victorian sense, reddened by the Norfolk sun]

We are the Bray’s Pie Consumption Society,
We are the Bray’s Pie Consumption Society,

Go fetch your German brand, your Coleman’s too,
Tie your curly hair; we’ve got a lot to do,
Put on your best smile and your prep ’em pies,
‘Cos time is hungrying by…

Get your apron, mate,
Get your apron, mate,
No bib around your ruddy neck today.
Hey!
Stack these plates of meat
Right up on the seat,

We are the Bray’s Pie Consumption Society,
We are the Bray’s Pie Consumption Societyy,

Put on your Jules shirt and Hunter boots,
Fetch your Fakenham pass; check the horn still toots,
Lots of la-di-dahs and Nor-Folk here,
Look alive and get out of here.

Get your apron, mate,
Get your apron, mate,
No bib around your ruddy neck today.
Hey!
Stack these plates of meat
Right up on the seat

We are the Bray’s Pie Consumption Society,
We are the Bray’s Pie Consumption Society.

Gotta get a bloomin’ move on
(Gotta get a bloomin’ move on)
Pie-a-gi-o. Gotta get straight.
Hurry up mate, gonna be late!
And ‘how’s your pastry?’
Tickety-boo, tickety-boo.
Gotta get a bloomin’ move on.

We are the Bray’s Pie Consumption Society,
We are the Bray’s Pie Consumption Society.
