Duchess of Fife = Wife - see above

In the thread I blickied above, there is a link to a site devoted to rhyming slang.

Was the Two Ronnies sketch the one about stepping on a "Richard the Third"? This turned out not to be what you expected.

Other songs include 'Green and Yeller' - a ?cockney parody of Lord Randall, which refers to

Where have you been Henry, my son
Where have you been, my currant bun

and

... Henry, my boy
... my Saveloy (a kind of sausage)
