If Thaz Yorksher

John tells us to take pride in our Yorkshire dialect.

Wen thaz darn sum forran street,
Anon strange ground thaz put thi feet,
An tha meets er bloke wier Yorksher voice,
Dunt it mek thiart rijoice !
Wi no to uthers it sounds s queer,
Burrits like music on thy tyke’s ear.
So nivver ang thiedd in shame,
Thi Yorksher tung tha should acclaim,
Foh the’s nowt er matter withi intellect,
Bi proud er thi Yorksher dialect.
