I'll see you on the far post...

I'll see you on the far post...

We are the Maesglas boys
we aint got not money,
we drinks lots of beer,
we drink Double Diamond ‘cos it’s full of good cheer.

When you’re walking down Maesglas Road,
doors and windows open wide,
then you’ll hear ol’Sheppy shout,
Get your fuckin’ woodbines out!

We are the Maesglas boys

Local song of Maesglas, South Wales
