A Nip in the Air

Good morning lad's, it's not so warm.
Is usually the greeting.
When the workers enter Golstones.
And the place it still wants heating.

Better to leave your coat on.
Until you've had a drink.
And then we'll see the shop steward.
And he can cause a stink.

Our lads won't work in this cold.
Will be the plea from him.
When really it's not that bad.
Well .. not for working in.

Within an hour it soon gets warm.
And so you see , it shows.
A little bit of awkwardness.
Will keep them on their toes
