  Just Reminiscing (by Susie)

1.  Playin’ roon the back court
Dreepin’ fae the dyke
Takin’ runnies across the midgie bins
Fences, railins ‘n the like
Being so careful wherr ye land
Cos if ye end up in the midden
Ye’d be aw covered in sooty ash
An yer maw wid kill ye - nae kiddin!

2.  Getting’ intae mischief
Wis somethin’ we coodnae help either
An eftur a kick up the backside fae the polis
Ye’d get a hidin’ back hame fae yer faither
Staunin’ up fur yersel
Wis something ye learnt quick
If ye cannae beat the bullies wi yer fists
Then beat thum wi a stick

3.  But if victory eludes ye
An a doin’ ye shood cop
Dinnae run greetin’ tae yer maw
Cos she’ll chase ye wi’ the mop
Ah’ll gie ye summit tae greet fur
Is the war cry thit ye’ll hear
As she sends ye straight back out again
Eftur a skelp aroon the ear

4.  Money hard tae come by
Yer maw wis alweys skint
Furget yer gourmet sandwiches
We’d make dae wi a piece ‘n pink lint
When we heard the sound o’ the bugle
Great excitement within us would start
Whit goodies cood we expect today

5.   Fae the ragman’s horse ‘n cart
Trading rags fur riches - oh whit a treat
So we ran aw the wey hame
Fae the ither end o’ the street
Kin a pleeze hiv some rags maw
Fur a ring, balloons ur laces
Well ye shood huv seen the big smiles
Light up oor cheeky wee faces

6.  We stood at the windae oan a Setturday moarnin
Fur the coalman’s truck we would wait
While yer maw wis doon oan her knees
Cleanin’ oot the grate
We’d whistle ‘n shout tae catch his attenshun
As he drove alang the street
Ah’ll huv a bag o’ rex Jimmy
‘n if it’s awe richt maw’ll pey ye nixt week

7.  The grate wis cleaned oot ‘n bricks replaced
Filled wi coal ‘n scrunched up paper
Getting’ the fire stoked up quickly
Really wis such a caper
Hurry up maw, ah’m freezin here
Therr’s a draught comin in the door
Tae get the fire really roarin
Gaunnae pit oan the blower
