Thread Name: Lyr Req: cockney rhyming slang songs
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: cockney rhyming slang songs
I know it isn't a song but I also remeber as a child we used to listen to the programme "Round Britain Quiz", most of it was over our heads but it was quite amusing one evening to hear a couple of eggheads attempt translating the following into standard english:
"Nip down to the lolly on the Johnny, get me some Harry's and colney's. 'Ere's an oxford and don't forget the kitchen"

Give it a go. Almost impossible I would think for a non-Londoner of a certain vintage but what do I know?
