THE PARCEL POST
Eee bah gum, bonny lad
It’s a reet cowead day fer it, in’t it?

I’ll say, aye, I’ll say,
it’s a reet bit parky, allreet!

Gooun then tha’ bonny lad
Threw some wood on fear…

An’ thee mate turns up t' blow
'eater in cab o’ thirty foot wagon.

Tha’s betta, says dri-ver.
As they ‘ead t’ next drop.
