Sykers Birthreight

Thers foorks ut keep calling themsleves Sykers,
But they just doornt know what they mearn,
Ah'll explain it nair to yer one and all,
An ahm noor bairn tell yer agearn.

A Sykers a person, nair get airt yer map,
Who were born between t'Commercial and - Bullfield Gap,
But if yer were born between Bullfield and th'Hill End Estate,
Then yo noorn a Syker, yer belong to th' Haggate.

But if yer were born between T'Hicker Biggins an Tom o'th Hills farm,
If yer say yer a Loinbottomer than yer'l come to noor harm,
But if yer were born aboon theer, and top o' Broadbank,
Then yer belong to another planet, yerve yer parents to thank.

So when the roll is called fert Sykers, and the bugler blows his horn,
It's not air long yerve lived up theer, it's the place weer yer born.

From 'Th' Owd Syker Looks at Life.'
