Yuns is supposed to be a contraction - You ones, or you'ns just like y'all stands for you all.
The bad word insert is funny. I guess it's like my teacher used to say ain ' t ain ' t a word.

Read the capital letters for the first part.
Read the lower case letters for the last part.
The rest is logic. The both of us doesn't fit inside this town.
