Yorkshire Dialect

On the flimsiest of excuses I want to reproduce here the lyrics to a poem that was released as an actual chart single and made it into the UK charts in the early 1980's, its "Capstick Comes Home" by the late Sheffield comedian, radio presenter and racontuer Tony Capstick.

The flimsiest of excuse is that Radio Leeds were doing a "Yorkshire dialect" day today.

The real reason is that I've searched forever on t'interweb for these lyrics and I need somewhere to save them to now.

So,

"Capstick Comes Home" by Tony Capstick
(spoken over Dvoraks New World Symphony)
(The Hovis advert tune)


I'll never forget that first day at t'pit.

Me an' mi fatha worked a 72 hour shift,
then wi walked home 43 mile through t'snow in us bare feet,
huddled inside us clothes med out o' old sacks.


Eventually we trudged over t'hill until wi could see t'street light twinklin' in our village.

Mi fatha smiled down at mi through t'icicles hangin' off his nose. "Nearly home now lad", he said.
We stumbled into t'house and stood there freezin' cold and tired out,
shiverin' and miserable, in front o' t' meagre fire.


Any road, mi mam says "Cheer up, lads. I've got you some nice brown bread and butter for yer tea."

Ee, mi fatha went crackers. He reached out and gently pulled mi mam towards 'im by t'throat.
"You big fat, idle ugly wart", he said. "You gret useless spawny-eyed parrot-faced wazzock." ('E had a way wi words, mi fatha. He'd bin to college, y'know).
"You've been out playin' bingo all afternoon instead o' gettin' some proper snap ready for me an' this lad", he explained to mi poor, little, purple-faced mam.


Then turnin' to me he said "Arthur", (He could never remember mi name), "here's half a crown.
Nip down to t'chip 'oyl an' get us a nice piece o' 'addock for us tea. Man cannot live by bread alone."

He were a reyt tater, mi fatha.

He said as 'ow workin' folk should have some dignity an' pride an' self respect,
an' as 'ow they should come home to summat warm an' cheerful.

An' then he threw mi mam on t'fire.

We didn't 'ave no tellies or shoes or bedclothes.

We med us own fun in them days.
Do you know, when I were a lad you could get a tram down into t'town, buy three new suits an' an ovvercoat, four pair o' good boots, go an' see George Formby at t'Palace Theatre, get blind drunk, 'ave some steak an' chips, bunch o' bananas an' three stone o' monkey nuts an' still 'ave change out of a farthing.

We'd lots o' things in them days they 'aven't got today - rickets, diptheria, Hitler and my, we did look well goin' to school wi' no backside in us trousers an' all us little 'eads painted purple because we 'ad ringworm.

They dun't know they're born today!!!

A little off topic, Guys... I have a question. Last weekend I looked at this site:
[url=http://www.rivalspot.com]Rivalspot.com - Xbox Live Tournaments[/url]
They say you can play online sports game tournaments on any console for cash... had anyone tried that before? Looks like a cool idea...
Are there any other sites where you can play sports games for real moneys? I Googled and found only Bringit.com and Worldgaming.com but it looks these guys don't specialize in sport gamez. Any suggestions?
