John is telling the younger generation to sit and listen to what the older generation have to say.
Just sit darn int corner seat,
Wen at thee t’ould folk natter,
Ould thi gob an rest thi feet,
An al tell thi wot’s er matter;
It’s foh thee t’nattrin’s orl abart,
Dunt think it’s just er game,
Cos day’ll come thall find it art,
An then thall bi just same.
— John Davison
