Read this on the Dunfermline Press site, thought it was funny so im sharing.

There's a man I meet

Walked up our street

He's a worker for the council

Has been twenty years

And he takes no lip off nobody

And grit off the gutter

Puts it in a bag

And never thinks to mutter

And he packs his lunch in a Farmfoods bag

The children call him Bogie

He never lets on

But I know 'cause he once told me

He let me know a secret

About the money in his kitty

He's gonna buy a snowplough

Gonna call her.... Nae Dignity



And I'll drive her up the west coast

Through villages and towns

You'll be on your holidays

Wheels spinning round and round

They'll ask me how I got her I'll say

I saved my money

They'll say isn't she pretty

That snowplough called... Nae Dignity



And I'm telling this story

In a faraway scene

Slipping down side streets

And reading the Dunfermline Press

And I'm thinking about home

And all that means

And a place in the winter

For.... Nae Dignity



And I'll drive her up the west coast

Through villages and towns

You'll be on your holidays

Wheels spinning round and round

They'll ask me how I got her I'll say

I saved my money

They'll say isn't she pretty

That snowplough called... Nae Dignity



Slipping up slipping up slipping up slipping up slipping up slipping up

Yeah slipping up again slipping up again slipping up again slipping up again

Slipping up slipping up slipping up slipping up slipping up slipping up

Yeah slipping up again slipping up again slipping up again slipping up again



And I'm thinking about home

And I'm thinking about faith

And I'm thinking about work

And I'm thinking

How good it would be

To get home some day

On a snowplough called Nae Dignity

A snowplough called Nae Dignity

That snowplough....
