The Blantyre Grace by Jimmy Whelan


Some hid Jam and some hid spam,
Others they hid poated heid,
The only thing you had to choose,
Wis, pan or plain breed.

Monday to Thursday, Irish mix grill
Roasters chips, wae cornbeef hash
Homemade soup wae loads of dookers,
Friday suppers ’cause yer da hid cash.

As ye sit here at this table
Stuffin yer big roon face
Bow yer heid and please partake
In appreciation of “The Blantyre Grace”
