As I sit here tonight, I'm tellin yer strite, its nee bliddy good gettin aad

Ye might think ye're wise cos yer’ve got saggy eyes, its nee bliddy good gettin aad

Aal that ye de is tell lee after lee, till leein comes natural as breath

If aal of yer lees waas torned inter fleas, ye'd be scratchin yerself half te death  


Chorus

Its nee bliddy good gettin aad, it's nee bliddy good gettin aad

Yer 5 percent truth & the rest is all mooth, its nee bliddy good gettin aad


Yer gan t the docs, it’s full of aad crocks, it’s nee bliddy gud getting’ aad

They’re aal there for jabs, they cadge aal yer tabs, it’s nee bliddy gud getting’ aad

The norse teks a fit if yer spit where yer sit and they hoy yer aad dog out the door

There’s a sign on the shelf says, “Look efter your health”

Ah thowt thats what doctors waas for!


Chorus


My mate’s cured his phlegm – he’s off t’ the crem – it’s nee bliddy gud getting aad

He fell in a trough - the cough saw him off – it’s nee bliddy gud getting’ aad

Ah stood in the pews an’ hord aal the news from folks with nee need of a comb

Ah thowt t’ mesel’ – by they luk unwell –they’re wastin’ their time going home


Chorus


There’s pubs nivvor hord of a domino board, it’s nee bliddy gud getting’ aad

Yer can’t buy a pie cos they’re aal watchin’ Sky, it’s nee bliddy gud getting’ aad

I mind when we’d feed on a lovely sheep’s heid and a big bowl of tripe on the bar

Now the chips are caaled fries – there’s folks wearin’ ties

What quiche is Ah just divvent knaa!


Chorus

Aad folks can’t rap but they taak loads o’ crap – it’s nee bliddy gud getting’ aad  
And the short time yer have,yer spend in the lav, its ne bliddy good gettin aad
Someone's only te say, “'How ye deein' today?”

And yer chewin' the lugs off their heid
If half it waas true, that the say's wrang wi’ thou

There's folks mair healthy that’s deid


 Chorus....
