My Old Tin Bath

This old tin bath of mine.
Is know full of holes as I don't have
the time to fill these holes.
As this old tin bath as know been
taken away by the rag and bone man who gave
me sixpence to replace the old tin bath
Where it was placed on cinder blocks
(breeze blocks)were
Er-in-dors lights the hot coals
To keep the water warm as I lay here
in my old tin bath
in the middle of summer
As Er-in-dors calls (me) a wet flannel.
You know it was the dogs bath day
not mine in my old tin bath.
