lyrics

My 1980’s lunch...
With 3D Piglets, cast in MSG and corn meal
The crackle and crunch wolf…
Five pennies for the orange packeted Prairie Wheels

In Ashby de La Zouch…
K.P. or Kenyon Produce nest, near to Adrian’s home
A Pandora’s Box of treats…
New hedgehog flavour or Walker’s flouting of colour codes

K.P. Sky Divers: only 5 pennies
In the car on the way from Grandma’s
Airy and corny, sky blue packet
Only puffs of wind in salt and vinegar

Close to the Stertin’s shop
Was an inflatable Santa with v-shaped digits
Spring onion Tudor Crisps
As the Band Aid single first came on the Top of the Pops’ list

Totally unsavoury, savoury flavourings
In dust of navy packets and salty seasonings
Ephemeral flavour shakers with fish and chip dust
Which we all would save to eat without the actual crisps

The anger of Raidettes…
After a 5p increase on Astra’s snacks
Artwork by Robin Smith…
Of Vy-Per the Venomous and a yellow square-eyed cat

Wickers gave me a jester kite
Astra the space pirate gave me dye-cast toys and a post-swimming bite

They were called Outer Spacers first…
Then Alien Spacers as well
Bright green or bright red to denote flavours…
The crisps themselves and their bags as well!

An Octopussy watch…
Free with the discontinued hunks of tomato flavour
Also crispy bacon…
Both of which were patronised by the, clearly fickle, blue monster

K.P. Sky Divers: only 5 pennies
In the car on the way from Grandma’s
Airy and corny, sky blue packet
Only puffs of wind in salt and vinegar

Joining the Monster Munchers Club
To get their tech specs, pen and tall stories books
The pink monster-shaped crisp is now long since gone
As are saucy flavour and their other two friends

Totally unsavoury, ice cream flavouring
It met with mixed reactions in 2004
Sharon Waterford invented the pickled onion flavour
Briefly poor graphic design, but now so cool once more
