28                     THE OLE SWEATS
The ole sweats—
The grub it was skimp with the ole sweats.
But if rashuns was small 'twas the same for us all,
Same for the 'ole of the ole sweats.
Well, if you want a sooveneer, a bit of blighty blue,
There's empty tunic sleeves to spare, a trousers leg or two,
And some day when you see us stand on Charing Cross parade,
Present a boot before us just to 'elp us at our trade.
The ole sweats—
Tuppence a shine with the ole sweats.
So you'll give us a show when you see us, we know,
Us that is left of the ole sweats.
