Here's tiv us, all on us, - me an' all - May we niver want nowt, noan on us, Nor me nawther. Qui capit ille habet. – Yorkshire translation: “Cop t’lot an’ stick.” A magpie behold, and a fly, and a flea, And a Yorkshireman’s qualifications you’ll see: To backbite and spunge, and to chatter amain, Or anything else, sir, by which he can gain. The horse shews they buy few, tho’ many they steal; Unhang’d they’re worth nought does the gammon reveal; But let censure stand by and not bias the mind, For others as bad as the Yorkshire you’ll find.
