Never move into a new home on any day other than Thursday - (Old Irish Tradition)
Never build on or plough up a fairy fort (another)
Never boil cabbages twice (A Liverpool refusal to repeat what has just been said).
Never lose your head while looking for your tail in Lime Street (Liverpool joke)
Never hang a man with a wooden leg (a rope is far more efficient)

Never let your braces dangle. dingle, dingle, dangle
Never thieve, don't deceive and never row or wrangle
Stick to the right, get away from the bad
Don't get as tight as your poor old Dad
But the greatest motto of the lot, my lad
Is never let your braces dangle.
