Holiday Lament     by: Wheeler, Les

I took a holiday an wint tae the meen
The beach wis the biggest I'd ivver seen
But there wis nae watter, nae discos, nae bars
Nae chip shop, nae mairkets, an nae bumper cars!
Nae nicht-life, nae cafes, nae sweetie, nae rock
An neen o yon stalls sellin aa kines o trock.
I'm jist nae gyan back, as I tellt my Ma;
There's jist nae atmosphere in yon place at aa!
