Hi! Its Lorna here again, Gillian’s Mum. Who doesn’t remember pieces (sandwiches) made of Mothers Pride thick cut plain bread ? And who fought over the doorstep ? (The lovely thick outside ends)
Scottish Breakfast Zoom Tea Towel
Toasted with cheese. Buttered with tomato soup. A jam or jeely piece. Delicious. The Jeely Piece Song was written by Adan McNaught in 1960.
With a great number of the population of Glasgow in the sixties living in high -rise flats the song is a very humorous tale of the difficulty of throwing snacks to the weans from these heights:
“Oh ye cannae fling pieces oot a twenty story flat,
Seven hundred hungry weans’ll testify tae that,
If it’s butter, cheese or jeely, if the breid is plain or pan,
The odds against it reaching earth are ninety- nine tae wan.”
Gillian Kyle’s version of Mothers Pride features strongly in The Scottish Breakfast Collection. Yet another Scottish treasure!
