By Geoge Wade

It's not very lang
and it's not very wide
wi terraced hooses
doon either side

Yet cars are parked
like yi've never seen before
and yi practically climb ower them
just ti get ti yi door.

If yi ask folk ti move them
yi git nowt but abuse
they show yi two fingers
then gan back in the hoose.

It used ti be quiet
but not any more
wi queer gannins on
behind many a door.

and during the fine weather
when their radios are blarin
they dain't give a dam
if it morders yi hearing.

Ah'm carlled an ard moaner
and they wish Ah was gone
but Ah'll hev the last laugh
cos Ah'm gannin next week
and Ah'm not lettin on.
