The Lincolnshire Sausage Protest Song

Woke up this morning

Heard the news

DEFRA’s given Lincolnshire the sausage blues

There’s a whole lot of rantin all over the fen

We’re not giving up we’ll appeal again

We grow cabbages and carrots, wheat and potatus

The Lincolnshire sausage needs protected status

Pasties from Cornwall

And Mowbray pie

We’ll protect our sausage ‘till the day we die

We’ve got the sausage

The sausage blues

We’ve got the sausage

It’s making the news

There’s a whole lot of rantin all over the fen

We’re not giving up we’ll appeal again oh yeah

We’ve got the sausage blues.
