"I've played music on the radio by many great songwriters, but I can think of no finer lyric writer than Dee Shipman. She has a great way with words, and a highly creative mind!"  

- David Hamilton

Down Petticoat Lane
(Dee Shipman / Roger Webb)

 
"Fresh eels, fresh , buy 'em and try 'em - jellied eels!"

"Fresh herring, salted herring, lovely herring, landed this morning!

"Chicks, chicks, lovely little day old chicks!"

Down Petticoat Lane
The barrow boys call out
They're setting each stall out 
On display

Down Petticoat Lane
Whatever your dish is
Meat, poultry or fish
It's fresh today

It's like Noah's Ark down here
For choosing a pet
There isn't a better 
Fur or feather show..........
Than Club Row.......

Each Sunday you'll find
All classes combined
For the common as mud
And the bluest blood
All wind up................
Down Petticoat Lane!

Down Petticoat Lane
You stroll as you view things
Some old or some new things
Cheek by cheek.............

"Fresh eels, fresh , buy 'em and try 'em - jellied eels!"

Down Petticoat Lane
Each sight and each sound here
The scents that abound here 
Are unique...

"Salted herring, fresh herrings...."

And language is no problem
The tiniest kid
Can bargain in Yiddish
Or in Cockney twang
Rhyming slang.......!

This market, you'll find
Is one of a kind
Round the world you can roam
But to feel at home
You wind up..........
Down Petticoat Lane!

"Chicks, day old chicks!"

"'Ere bought another one already Joe mate?"

"Not today thank you, I'm not a natural born raiser of day old chickens...."

"Oh, you got to know the trick of it"

"I'm going to buy a unicorn this time.!"

"You do that son! You do that!"


And language is no problem
The tiniest kid
Can bargain in Yiddish
Or in Cockney twang
Rhyming slang.....!

This market, you'll find
Is one of a kind
Round the world you can roam
But to feel at home
You wind up.....
Down Petticoat Lane

Round the world you can roam
But to feel at home
You wind up...........
Down Petticoat Lane!

Down Petticoat Lane!
