  The North East

Alreet ivrybody, aa’m a Geordie bairn.

A bonny lass from Shields, hyem of that cookson lassie.

Reet heor in me toon yee’ll find the sands ‘n the Tyne.

Alang biv the dunes theor’s the shows.

Cum the autumn yee’ll see thoosan’s of joggas ‘n pretty lasses.

Me skyul towld me ta reet aboot the North East.

But my hyem is Sooth Shields ‘n thon’s what thos vorse is aboot.
