                                                                           It’s run an’ jump an’ hop an’ skip,

                                                                         An’ sheawt hooray, an’ hip, hip, hip,

                                                                             It’s singin’ songs an’ eytin tripe,

                                                                            An’ suppin’ pints at single swipe,

                                                                           An’ brass for th’ wife to buy a hat,

                                                                         An’ th’ childer brass for this an’ that,

                                                                           An’ beauncin’ gaily op an’ deawn,

                                                                            Yo’ connut find a merrier teawn,

                                                                                     When Owdham’s won.


                                                                        Aw lost mi brass, Awm crabbed an’ croot,

                                                                               Aw lifted th’ cat eaut wi’ mi boot,

                                                                                  Awr ne’er as mad i’ o mi life,

                                                                            Cleautin’ th’ kids an’ cursin’ th’ wife,

                                                                            Awm sure mi brains han left mi yed,

                                                                              Ther’s nowt to do but goh to bed,

                                                                              At six o’clock o’ th’ Setturday neet,

                                                                                 They’re o i’ bed i’ eaur street,

                                                                                        When Owdham’s lost.


Some words of explanation:

Sheawt = shout

Eytin = eating

Childer = plural of child

Deawn = down

Brass = money

Croot = crooked, probably cross and upset

Eaut = out

O = all

Han = they have

Yed = head
