i visited my grandparents house
one sunday afternoon
to hear my grandad having a bit of a grouse
as he sat by the fire in the living room.
i only want two bob, ''he said'
for a lovely pint of beer
grandma's face turned a shade of red
that grandad knew to fear.
but when he saw me standing there
he thought he'd have another go
listen love, its just not fair
i've worked all week you know .
my throat is parched ,i've never been so dry
and i've been all week down that pit
gran replied ' you could make a glass eye cry
but you are still not getting it .
then he took her in his arms
and kissed her tenderly
i knew she'd fallen for his charms
when she winked at me .
grandma said .. ok you win
taking two bob from her purse
grandad gave me a victorious grin
then went to quench his thirst .
