Through the meadaw dippinâ deep ta the valley
A lone boy strolled talking most to hisself
Thoât he heard a reply oâer yonder cliffâs shelf
âHELLO!â says he through his two cupp-ed hands
As answer came to him from way far off lands
He jes couldnât make out who was this child
The answer returned and it twernât all that mild
I thinks I will find who this loud feller be
So he hid hind a briar bush and down on one knee
âWHO IS YA FELLER?â âtwas almost a quake
Same words cominâ back and mad did he shake
Riled up was the first whose voice had been mocked
âLOOKINâ FER A FIGHT?â Said he, ready and cocked
That voice kept a mocking most loud than afore
If he wants a whoopinâ heâll git that and more!
Now Maâs words come back to this lil olâ lad
âYer frens er jes like ya so donât make me sad
Pick uns that er gooduns ta walk alongsideâ
He gave no good listen nor did turn the tide
The yellinâ got fiercer un louder did spout
His Ma had she heard him âud yank him about
He came from hind bush to have a look see
Why, twernât no other only one is jes me!
Pickunâ frens that er like yaâs not always the trouble
Could be problemâs you, anâ you got a double
Can two walk together âsept they be agreed
Take a look in the mirror; see what fixinâ ya need!
