The Haircut

 

  Claw comes 'round on Saturday morning, and listens

to me and Uncle Johnno arguing. Uncle Johnno is

drunk, and yelling at me to get a haircut. He doesn't like

The Beatles either, he hates them. He reckons they're a 

pack of girls.

  Uncle Johnno keeps yelling at me to get a haircut, 

" Short back and sides, else I won't take you to the 

football this afternoon. " I'm not taking someone who 

looks like a bloody fairy to the football! Go and get 

your haircut, short back and sides! "

  And I yell back at me, " I ain't going to the barbers,

I don't care if I don't go the football! "

  " Alright! " Uncle Johnno shouts at me, " Bugger you,

I'll go to the football by myself! I'm not going to the 

football with someone who looks like a bloody fairy! "

  And Uncle Johnno tells me when he comes home 

from the football that he told everyone he knew that

I was a bloody fairy.
