The BBC pronounce it will a drawl,
As they announce our town Wall-sawl.
But locally we clip this word,
To draw it out sounds so absurd.
Wor-sul is how we simply spake,
‘Cos Walsall folk ain’t anything fake.
So with the football season commencing next week,
Let’s hope the BBC can remember how we speak.
So please remember that Wor-sul is how we say the name,
I wish they would say it just the same.
A town built on labour and solid hard graft,
To say Worsul any differently simply sounds daft!
