The battle on the stair

Says Mrs. Doyle to Mrs. Grant,
You’d better clean the stairs!
Ye’ve missed yer turn for mony a week,
The neighbours a’ did theirs !
Says Mrs. Grant to Mrs. Doyle,
I’ll tell ye Mrs. Doyle,
You’d better mind your ain affairs
And clean the stair yoursel’.
It’s a disagreeable thing
A row upon the stairs,
Flyting, scolding, scandle and clash
Is a row upon the stairs.
