Wen’ in th’ Toad & Frog,
Order’d a beer f’r himself,
An’ anoth’r f’r his dog…
“How’d th’ Rovers ge’ on t’dee?”
Jim ask’d th’ barman, Chris,
“Los’ again,” wa’ th’ reply,
Wi’ some derisive sniffs…
“USELESS TWITS !” growl’d th’ dog,
As on th’ floor he lay,
“USELESS TWITS !” he said again,
In a mos’ dogmatic way…
“Hoots !” exclaim’d a visitor,
An’ he turn’d t’ Jim,
“A talkin’ dog, bu’ wha’s he say
When th’ Rovers win?”
“I dinna ken,” aul’ Jim replied,
As he pick’d up th’ beers,
“Y’ see I’ve on’y had ‘im
F’r th’ las’ five years….”
