What is a Geordie? I’ve heard many people ask To give a definition is not an easy task Some think he is a Heathen who grows leeks and lives on beer But, if you listen for a while, I will give you my idea; When God first made the universe His handiwork was grand He made a man of every creed to cultivate the land. He made Eskimo’s for Iceland, Africans to stand the heat, But when it came to Geordies He said..”I doot ahm beet.!!” So He made a man of iron, with muscles of forged steel For heaving coal and ship building, a job that he’s done well. And just to finish off the job, at least, so I’ve been told, He completed his first Geordie by giving him a heart of gold. So when you ask “What is a Geordie?” just stop and think again If it wasn’t for Geordie Stephenson we’d’ve had no railway train And awld Joe Swan from Sunderland first made electric light And St Geordie slew the dragon, ahm varnaye sure that’s right! So d’yi wonder that ahm proud to be a Geordie lad..? A first class team, the world’s best beer, surely that can’t all be bad..? And when my earthly days are done and I leave this world of sin I’d like to hear St Peter say..”Haway, Geordie, it’s yor torn t’ get thim in..!! fun!!! fun!!! fun!!!
