“Eer!

Eermate! Mate mate!

Thank God you’ve stopped, you see,

I’ve ‘obbled far and wide today,

Norf  ‘n’ souf and everywhere,

I can barely bend me knee!

Nobody I’ve talked to yet has spoken back to me,

I’m wond’rin’ if you could help me out,

See,

Everyone’s a miser,

Everyone’s a scrooge,

Could you ‘elp me out, mate,

I’d get down on me knees,

If only this one would bend,

I’ll ask you just once, please,

Could you ‘elp with some small change

So’s I could gerra cuppa tea?”
