    It’s a good tune, so was immensely proud when the young ‘un asked for it to be my ring tone when he was only 5

    told the story at my Daughter's Wedding of her first match at 5/6 or so. Mum asked if she had enjoyed it on her return and she said it was great especially the songs with her fav "the Referee's a Wonka" :lol::oops::lol:

    So unsophisticated but so brilliant. Maybe in the top ten punk songs ever.

    I am sure it was “and his hands all clay” when my mother used to sing it

    Now I have a vague recollection of what swarf was. Was it the razor sharp spiral of steel that was produced when drilling large holes in to thick steel plates? I might be hoplessly wrong but if I am right I promise that I haven't looked it up.
    I used to see that stuff when passing Marshall's foundry/ workshop in The Kings Road off Southwick Green when I was a kid.

    It can lead to an odd mixture of pride and guilt. I dropped the bairn, seven, at her school for a half term sports camp thing the other day. I had to leave her in a sports hall full of lads in Chelsea and Arsenal strips while she was in her Sunderland top. I was proud but also a bit guilty for the stick she might get.

    Still, as I always tell her, it’s character building.

    Yeah, like this
    And you used something called Swarfega to clean the shit off your hands.

    Iteresting - "Swarf" doesn't seem to be a NE dialect word though. It sounds as if it should be.

    I always have a tub of Swarfega about. Apart from your hands I have found that it's the best thing to get wet paint and oil off clothing. It's much better than turps and white spirit that damage the natural oils in the cloth, are harder to wash out and stink.
