Saint Andrew’s ‘The Word On The Pavey’

The Word on the Pavey by Saint Andrew

Here in the City Life office, while we have been working overtime on our pre referendum issue, we can not stop listening to the cult classic Saint Andrew album ‘The Word on The Pavey’. So we just had to share these Dundee lyrics with you.

 

This World is Phuhl O’ A Number O’ Things

 

This world is phul o’ a number o’ things
Ra- Rhumba ra Samba ra Hielan fling
Crivvens, Help ma Boab and Jings
This world is phul o’ a number o’ things

Sahlt and pepper, sugar and muwk
Eammon Bannon, Acker Buwk
Sweetie mice and a’ things bent
Self abuse in a two-man tent
Doags, bairns, taxis, fags
Trumpets, raggies, collecting rags
Snouts, louts and louping trouts
Trout floutin down and out

Minks and tappers come awa
Have a laugh a’ ha-ha-ha-ha-ha
Crivvens, help ma Boab and Jings
This world is phuhl o’ a number o’ things
Good anes, bad anes, the simply pish
The Mars Bar supper and the Singul Fish

She’s young she’s singul but she’s a fish
In a fish pan whit we creh !

Pehs and bridies, mince in bowls
Joobly’s Spam and sassage rolls
Belgium biscuits, terts and scones
Jehants, fairies, leprechauns

Hough, tatties, beans and chips
Hula- hoops and sherbert dips
Choony, pent and onion rings
This world is phuhl o’ a number o’ things
Roar on for ra- Mongery
Hurrah for Yit- Yattery
If ye ken whaur ehm comin fae

Cardies, jerjeys, lum – of – nade
The Wellgate Centre on a sunny day
Chippers, Lahrries, Bogeys, Trams
A Sporting Post on the bus to Glamis
Vest and ponties, nips and drams
Assoarted teabred, jars o’ jam
Wuwks and peens and dreels that hing
This world is phuhl o’ a number o’ things
Crivvens, help ma Boab and Jings
This world is phuhl o’ a number o’ things

Caterpillar shed his breeks

Crivvens, help ma Boab and Jings
This world is phuhl o’ a number o’ things
