    Nae grit left

    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....
