This mud + slime
Though we get sore in it
Grumble + roar in it
We'll win the war in it
In our good time!

My dad ain't just the letter writin' kind -
He's rather let the women see to that;
He's got a mess o' troubles on his mind,
And likes to keep 'em underneath his hat.
And p'raps because he isn't very strong
On talking', why he's kind o' weak on ink
But he can/cant work like in the whole year long
And, crickey, now that dad o' mine can think.
When I set out from Oldham last July
He didn't bawl the way my old friend did.
He just shook hands + says "Girlie good-bye"
(He's got his feelin's, but he keeps 'em hid)
