Ẃn I wz wn-n-twenti
I hŕd a wîz man se,
“Gv crǎnz n pǎndz n giniz
Bt nt yr hart awe;
Gv prlz awe n rūbiz
Bt cīp yr fansi fri.”
Bt I wz wn-n-twenti,
No ys t tōc t m.

Ẃn I wz wn-n-twenti
I hŕd him se agn,
“Ɖ hart ǎt v ɖ bŭzm
Wz nvr gvn in ven;
’tiz peid wɖ saiz aplenti
N sold fr endlis ru.”
N I am tū-n-twenti,
N ǒ, ’tiz tru, ’tiz tru.
