Womtime at Golstones

Gerr eawt road, ther com'in.
At orf past three , they sheawt.
It's murder if tha copped in't rush.
When't wimmins comin eawt.

Aw that bumpin weight.
Feightin 't get tert front.
There's one theer . must be twenty stone.
Favvers an elefunt.

If tha gets in't road er yon yowth.
Underneeth them legs.
Tha'l eend up in leyth I'firmry'
As sure as eggs is eggs.

So tak a tip from one us knows.
Un lissun to this line.
Try gerr eawt afoor um.
Else werk some o'ertime.
