El Toopay

It startid wi a bawd spot,
Abeawt as big as orf a creawn.
Then it gett'n bigger, un werk't its road areawnd.
Every time I ad a bath, or washed mi hair at neet.
I'd look deawn on'tert floo'er,
There'd bi hair aw reawnd mi feet.

Faw'in eawt in chunks, it wuz.
Bawd as a coot , on top.
Un then I tried a Toopay,
Favver'd a flamin mop.
I said I would'nt wear it,
Wife said, it looked awreet.
I said us folk erd laff at mi , becos it looked a seet.

Her geet her road, I wore it.
It were stuck on wi tape, un pinned.
Burr everybody laffed at mi.
It blew off in't bloody wind.
