The Toaster Song

This is a silly little ditty I came up with in September 2020. I was doing a Dutch lesson on Mondly, and one of the phrases that came up was "De kust is lang". I used voice input on my phone to enter the translation "The coast is long", but this came out as "The toaster song", so I thought I'd write a song about a toaster. It features some of the regional names for bread and bread rolls found around the UK.

The Toaster Song

Here I sit in the corner of the kitchen
by the keetle and the tea
The bread goes in and toast pops out
and then you forget about me.

There's so much more I could do for you
There's all kinds of bread I could toast
There's white bread and brown bread and wholemeal too
granary and rye bread you know.

There's nothing quite like some hot buttered toast
with honey or marmalade or jam
you can have it with eggs either scrambled or poached
or just add some cheese and let it melt.

There's barm cakes and teacakes, crumpets and waffles
I can toast them all for you
there's baps and buns and bara brith
bread rolls and nudgers and cobs.

Here's a rough recording of this song:
