This song was especially written and sung by Liz Rawlings for the Blandford Evening W.I. ladies at our Christmas lunch. We all loved the lyrics and are very grateful to her for doing this for us.
If your pastry's soggy-bottomed or your jam will never setLadies, there is help out there - no need to fume or fretThey're creative and the're funny, and their jam is never runnyJust rely ......... on the WI. The ladies of the WI are found throughout the land Creating and debating, with cup of tea at hand This inspiring institution makes the world a better placePutting new skills at your fingertips and a smile upon your face. If you're feeling a bit jaded, and long for something new These lovely friendly ladies have a wealth of things to doTrips and visits, things to make, lots of laughs and tea and cake So please don't cry ..........join the WI Long gone are the preconceptions about Jerusalem and Jam There's no initial interview, no end-of-term exam So come and stretch your mind, 'cos its guaranteed you'll find It's a hoot ............ at the Institute To educate, enrich, inspire is what they aim to do No matter your age, race, or creed there's a welcome there for you There's a branch in almost every town where local ladies meet So come and join the WI, it'll be right up your street! Ladies, I confess that I'm really quite perplexed I simply can't imagine what you're going to tackle next So much to do, so many things - embrace them, try them, spread your wings And fly .............. with the WI
