C                                                   G
Now there’s a place in Wigan a place you all should know
                                               C
A busy little factory where things are all the go
                                                            F
They don’t make Jakes or Eccles Cakes or things to stick on walls
    G                                                C
But night and day they work away at Uncle Joe’s Mint Balls

Chorus 
C                                          G
'Cos Uncle Joe’s Mint Balls keep you all aglow
                                              C
Give ‘em to your grannie and watch the buggar go
                                            F
Away with coughs and sniffles take a few in hand
G                                                         C
Suck ‘em and see you’ll agree they're the best in all the land

Verse 2
C                                               G
Me dad has always wanted curly hair on his bald head
                                                     C
Suck an Uncle Joe’s Mint Ball that’s what the doctor said
                                                           F
So he got an Uncle Joe’s Mint Ball and sucked it all night long
     G                                              C
When he got up next morning he’d hairs all over his tongue

Chorus 
C                                          G
'Cos Uncle Joe’s Mint Balls keep you all aglow
                                              C
Give ‘em to your grannie and watch the buggar go
                                            F
Away with coughs and sniffles take a few in hand
G                                                         C
Suck ‘em and see you’ll agree they're the best in all the land

Verse 3
C                                             G
Me Uncle Albert passed away from ale upon the brain
                                                         C
The doctors said that he were dead and would never walk again
                                                             F
So they gave the corpse an Uncle Joe’s and then stood back aghast
         G                                                           C
'Cos the corpse jumped up and ran to the pub and spent the insurance brass

'Cos Uncle Joe’s Mint Balls keep you all aglow
                                              C
Give ‘em to your grannie and watch the buggar go
                                            F
Away with coughs and sniffles take a few in hand
G                                                         C
Suck ‘em and see you’ll agree they're the best in all the land

                                                C
And fire in grandad’s boiler ‘ad gone out long ago
                                                     F
So ‘e got an Uncle Joe’s Mint Ball sucked it all the night
        G                                           C

Away with coughs and sniffles take a few in hand
G                                                         C
Suck ‘em and see you’ll agree they're the best in all the land
