Me dad grows hairy guzzgogs in our garden. Their taste would make you want to go and cry. But then me mother does her bit o’ magic and we’ll be eatin’ luscious guzzgog pie. And that is why I’ll marry when I’m older, cos growing stuff is summat I will do. But when it comes to making tasty pastry, just like me dad… I won’t not have a clue. I s’pose I’ll go to work inside a factory. I s’pose I’ll even earn a bob or two. On weekends you will find me on me garden where there will always be a ton to do. And I will have them rakes and spades and dibbers. And I will grow that food throughout me life. But I won’t have no clue how I should cook it… so that is why I’m gonna need a wife.
