Nobody's perfect!!

Nobody's perfect,
My parents always said.  
And then, when I did something wrong,
They'd send me straight to bed !!

My father was a steelworker,
My mother his loving wife.
Money was scarce, my clothes passed down,
But I had a brilliant life.

I remember my first day in secondary school,  
All the kids in brand new gear.  
Standing in a line outside,
And shivering with fear.

My life was seldom boring,  
My life was sometimes sad.
But I was born and bred in Wales,
And for that I am truly glad...
