The Man on the Couch


Usually up ladders,he got taken doon a peg,

Lying on a bed settee in a single end

wi his broken leg.

He’d hurt it playin fitba oan his brek.
This strange guy

lyin therr for days, 

wiz ma Da so ah wiz telt.

Ah jist found it funny him bein therr,

that’s aw ah felt.
But ah learnt tae mark his horses.

The wan, two, three

oan the cairds in the papers

and that became somethin for me.
