Alan Geoffrey Sheard with his wife Pat when they appeared on BBC Radio Sheffield with Tony Capstick


Pit boots
Snap Tin Buy my books

Lend me a quid

Have you got a pound I said to my mate in the lounge

I am out of work now and I hate to scrounge

But My bairn needs nappies in my home I have no bread

I loaned you money when I was in work you would pay me back you said

Sorry son the man replied I'm afraid that I am skint

But you sell your drugs you b****** you must make a mint

Button it ex miner do not show me up

I can buy shorts now and you are f****** skint

Don't take the p*** the miner said, I'm sick of being in the s***

And with that he dropped the b****** with a perfect right
