Like whippets

Like flat caps

Like roll ups and best bitter

Like cobbled streets

Mirrors of rain

Like water and steam trains

Like terrace streets that run for miles and miles and miles

Like the dirty face of a child


Like freckles and frogspawn in jam jars

Like factories mills and mines and old school cars

Like nasal

Like swagger

Like pipes and comedians in dickie bows

Like punk without the daft clothes

Like tea leaves not tea bags

Like long johns and boots

On a Monday morning your mam pawns your dads best suit

Like Bovril from a flask

Like going to he match

To watch Preston
