The Nurse     by: Wheeler, Les

Tummlin in the play-grun
A hack made wi a knife.
Cleanin, dressin, calmin;
That's the nurse's life.

Lyin in the ward, noo;
Tonsils affa sair.
Nurse'll mak it better
Dinna greet nae mair.

Broken airm, split heid…
Maybe something worse.
Aathing is seen better
Thanks tae the nurse.
