Mersey - how on earth did she manage to have a conversation during that!! :-S

Prickly, I remember hearing the song sung in a pub in Shetland - The Lounge Bar to be precise by members of 'Boys of the Lough' - okay, I may have had a couple, but not too many - it was lunchtime, and I was waiting for my lift home after shopping - but I had difficulty understanding the song - it's so fast!! :-S :-S :-S

Try this then dancing pearly kings and queens rule ok
One of my grand aunts, a Davis (yes, those Davis) was a pearly queen.

East Enders and Essex Boys and Girls should have no trouble keeping up.
Yes, in case you wondered, Rollo does have an Essex accent. 'e don't care.


PricklyHolly Report 15 Nov 2017 10:25

What did he just say?



RolloTheRed Report 15 Nov 2017 10:31

ask the hairy one


JoyLouise Report 15 Nov 2017 10:55

Personally, I think I must have a funny kind of voice - mixed dialects and regional words because sometimes people ask where I'm from.

I have lived as a cuddy for many years even though I am a scouser by birth and early years. Chuck those two accents together with a sprinkling of other places I've lived in and, hey presto, you have a mongrel accent.

Myself, I hear myself with a cuddy accent but that's just me - cuddy is so like cuddly.

:-D :-D :-D

My children can do most accents, something I've never mastered, I'm sad to say.


supercrutch Report 15 Nov 2017 17:28

Gosh they have grown up since I first saw them...lolol

Regarding the modern 'Essex' way of speaking, It's affected and doesn't belong on any lists of accents. Most of the words they have butchered also belong in a large refuse bin!


Mersey Report 15 Nov 2017 17:31

Pwicks :-D :-D


PricklyHolly Report 15 Nov 2017 17:34

I know.
