Newport 9

by Albert Semple, August 2022

  1. Check me out — I'm looking fine.
  2. My mates say I'm a Newport Nine.
  3. Buy us a drink? Whatever mate.
  4. I'd never go below an eight.

  5. But when in Cardiff, I confess
  6. I'm just a six, or maybe less.
  7. And when in Bristol, barely four -
  8. I'm realistic 'bout my score.

  9. But back in Newport, I'm a nine,
  10. Unless I go to Croespenmaen.
  11. They're in a different league again,
  12. And rate us as a Valleys Ten.
