I can't go back to savoury
 
Em7 F#m Em7 
My wife Mary made a lovely Shepherd's Pie and peas
Bm F#m 
With carrots and gravy, oh and cabbage as an additional green
I said "That looks fantastic love" and I tucked in hungrily
My daughter Karen did not, something I wish I had seen
For soon my plate was empty I said "Mary is there any more?"
She said "No love but its treacle sponge for afters" and I said "Pwoar"
I had a couple of mouthfuls when I heard Karen declare
"I can't eat anymore of this Shepherd's Pie mum"
Well it filled me with despair
 
Em7 F#m 
Because if I'd had known I would have had it, you know (spoken)
 
F#m Bm 
But I can't go back to savoury now
F#m Bm 
That Sheppard's Pie was stunning but I'm half way through me pudding
F#m Bm A 
can't go back to savoury now
Gm Em7 
My taste buds would go crazy, I can't go back to savoury now     
 
Em7 F#m Em7 
My tummy was in turmoil, I was panicked and confused
Bm F#m 
And as Karen's dinner grew colder, so did my sweet (spoken)
For my pleasure in that treacle sponge was massively reduced
By the site of fluffy potato and glistening meat (spoken)
 
Take this plate from me o Lord before I go insane
Em F#m 
Should I press on with my afters, or go back to me main
 

Chorus

 
Bb 
Can't go back, I wont go back, I'd love to go back but I mustn't do that
Bb 
Can't go back, I wont go back, Obviously I'd love to go back but I mustn't do that 
 
Em7 F#m Em7 
At that moment I heard a sound, the scrape of knife on plate
Bm F#m 
As I watched Karen's dinner go in the dog's dish (spoken)
My appetite now gone, my pudding suffered the same fate
I can only assume this appalling outcome...  was God's wish
 

Chorus

No I can't go back to savoury now
