Lyrics

My ord father he used ti say ti me,
'Here's a bit o' summat that Ah'll 'a ti tell ti thee,
Thoo knows nowt, tha's nobbut very dense,
Thi ’eead is full o' summat but it isn’t full o' sense.
Ah's gan ti give thee a bit o' good advice,
No need ti tak offence becos it's nowt but common sense.
Thoo mun 'ear all and thoo mun know nowt,
And thoo mun see all and thoo mun say nowt,
And thoo mun tak all an’ thoo mun gi' nowt,
And thoo mun sup all and thoo mun pay nowt,
An' if ivver thoo does anythin' fer nothin’ allus do it for thissen
