Can’t Mannij

John describes an encounter between his boss and Bill.

“Is the’re er reason,” t’gaffer spat,
T Bill one day azi sat,
“Evri week tha oani works four,
Thi attendance lad a do deplore!”
“Ar,” sed Bill, gob full er snap,
“Am truly sorry foh mi weekly gap,
Burral tell thi nar wot’s up wi me,
A oani work four cos a can’t mannij on three!”
