A Nip in't Th'air

" Mornin lads, it's not so waarm."
Is usually the greetin.
When't werk'ers enter Golstones,
Un place it still wants heatin.

......

Better leave thi coat on ,
Until tha's ad a drink.
Un then wil see shop steward.
Un he con cause a stink

......

" Ar lads wain't werk in this ere cowd."
Will be the plea from him.
When really it's nor aw that bad.
Well. Not for werkin in.

......

Wee in an har, it soon gets waarm.
Un so yo see it shows.
A likkle bit of awkertness,
Ull keep um on their toes.
