"What was he supposed to do/ Sing them in Salfordese?"

To be fair to Ed it has to be admitted that his accent is a bit cringe-worthy but to me what is just as strange is the tone of the voice. It does sound really weird almost as if he's taking the p*** (and I know he isn't) or doing a bad impersonation of Jimmy Krankie! It is of course not s serious song anyway - but even taking that into account it is dire! Though as others have pointed out he's done enough great work to not worry about the existence of this piece :-)
