“So I deserve to live here in Liverpool then?”

“A Geordie!” I`m startled as a shop assistant exclaimed
“Wye Aye Man” I responded and he was amazed
“Living in Liverpool?” he queried with a face full of muse
“Wye Aye Man” I replied looking rather bemused
“You have to be a comedian to live here” I`m told
“Wye Aye Man” but I knew my jokes were old
“Well, will you be a Blue or Red?” this Scouser asked
“Haddaway Howay Man!” I`m wearing my toon top like
“Well you are a woolyback” he said with a grin
“An` yer a buggamarra” his eyes started blinking
“Don’t means to offend you” the Liverpool lad amended
“Wye Nee Man, buggamarra means “My Dear Friend””
“Sound!” he laughed and tittered then laughed again
“So I deserve to live here in Liverpool then?”

"Wye Aye Man" (with a Scouse accent)
