Liner Notes: 

Barnsley is a town in Yorkshire England. It's famed for having been the home of legendary cricket umpire Dickie Bird.

Yorkshire more generally is famous for cricket, whippets, ferrets, cricketer Geoffrey Boycott. They also like having chips with gravy and mushy peas

I'm not sure why or how this lyric came to me but hopefully it's fun without being something that Yorkshire people would find annoying ...

Lyrics: 

Party In Barnsley

(Chorus)
You bring the chips
I'll bring the gravy
Jill can bring the mushy peas
We're going to have a party in Barnsley
We're going to have a party in Barnsley

(Verse 1)
We're going to see a wicket in the cricket
Commentated on by Geoffrey
Our whippet will be livid
If that's not a full toss delivery

(Chorus)
You bring the chips
I'll bring the gravy
Jill can bring the mushy peas
We're going to have a party in Barnsley
We're going to have a party in Barnsley

(Verse 2)
We found a free bet on t'internet
Placed a flutter on the footie
Our ferret who's called Everett
Predicted Leeds nil Barnsley three (F/X: Sound of cheering)

(Chorus)
You bring the chips
I'll bring the gravy
Jill can bring the mushy peas
We're going to have a party in Barnsley
We're going to have a party in Barnsley

(Bridge)
We got bunting hanging from the ceiling
We got a portrait of Dickie Bird
We shout 'How's that?!' as we raise a toast
Everybody yells 'Not out!'

(Chorus)
You bring the chips
I'll bring the gravy
Jill can bring the mushy peas
We're going to have a party in Barnsley
We're going to have a party in Barnsley
