'My aunty had cancer' by Alan Marshall

The man sits down on his ass all day

Reading the paper or watching the telly

Putting beans and bangers in his belly

He could do the wall papering in the bathroom

The man makes me sick

The woman is ill, he makes her work

The cooking, the cleaning...she can’t rest

I call him a lazy bugger ass

The man should help, get the doctor in

Rub her stomach, help her,

He doesn’t lift a finger

He lets her illness trap her.
