Cockney Rhyming slang for teeth
Is in fact your
A Mince pie
Means your 'eye'
And Barnet Fair
Means your Hair
If you need to go upstairs
You must use the Apples and Pears
When proceeding down the road
It is called the Frog and Toad
When you have a wife and kids
That's Trouble and Strife and Saucepan Lids
Or perhaps you mean your sister
She would be your 'Skin and Blister'
You call your feet your
Plates of Meat
But if you cover them with boots
They become your Daisy Roots
If you steal then you have 'Pinched' it
Cockneys say you have 'Half Inched' It!
If you feel a little sick
It means that you are Uncle Dick
Finally if you are dead
Then prepare to be 'Brown Bread'
Karked It, Snuffed It, means the same
It's just a little Cockney game!
There are oh so many more Don't want to be a Cockney Bore! Ok just a couple more over the page:
If your feet hurt you say 'My dogs are barking' If you are hungry 'My belly thinks my throats been cut' A pie with not much meat in it 'All kennel & no dog' And finally
A snobby woman who pretends she's better than her friends. 'All fur coat and no knickers.'* Panties* If someone is untrustworthy 'Every time he shakes your hand you have to count your fingers'
Someone who is mean with money: "Short arms and long pockets" Modern slang: Ruby (Murray) Curry Britney (Spears) Beers!
