Default Pittsburgh Christmas Carol

Pittsburgh Christmas Carol

Yinz better wahtch aht

Yinz better not paht

Yinz better not cry,

I'm tellin yinz hauscome

Santa Clause is commin' dahntahn

He's makin' a list

He's checkin' it aht

He's gowen find aht who's nebby an at

Santa Clause is commin' dahntahn

He knows if yinzes a jaggoff

He can see inside your haus

He knows if you've been workin' hard

Or sittin' on your caach

Yinz better wahtch aht

Yinz better not paht

Yinz better not cry,

I'm tellin yinz hauscome

Santa Clause is commin'

dahntahn.....

What is frightening is that this

is perfectly understood by those of us

that have grown to love the Burgh.

Merry Christmas

Hello PisnNapalm,
Excuse my ignorance but am I right in thinking that your carol was written in a Pittsburgh dialect?
Many of the sounds of the words put me in mind of a London accent!
For example,aht,dahntahn and caach are so co*kney!
I don`t really understand what yinz is however....you?
I was aware of the word because I Want Troys Hair posted a stunning video about Pittsburgh and the Steelers but it didn`t really explain yinz in any kind of detail.
Was Dick Van Dyke from Pittsburgh?
