God’s Own Country Poem

Is summat up wi thissen?

Can tha get meh?

Al tell ya summat fo’ nowt

you folk reckon I chelp nonsense.

 

Ah’m fair stalled of chunterin’

baht how i say coit or coke or no.

fratchin’ baht teacake, or

snicket or brew

 

Doesn’t tha know I’m from

God’s Own Country? Stop Gawpin’ n’ faffin’

when I ‘appen t’say a word

not t’taste of thissen

 

Chuffin’ eck lass

ah’ll go t’foot of ahr stairs,

when tha hears another lass

talkin’ language of a yorkshireman.
