The Telephone     by: McKenzie, Ryan

The phone jist rings an makks me jump
An maw says, ‘Answer it ye lazy lump!’
I skelp doon the stairs wi a great big dunt
An yell intae the phone, ‘Fit dae ye want?’

‘Div ye want a new kitchen?’ says the mannie tae me
‘A bonnie new cooker for makkin yer tea?’
I reply ‘Are ye aff yer heid ye great big neep?
Dinna phone me again, cause I’m gaun back tae sleep!’
