Brit szleng szavak az ábécé minden betűjére, egy dalban, hogy könnyebb legyen őket megjegyezni.

A is for Aggro, which means irritation

B is for Blimey, a quaint exclamation!

C is for Chin wag, so let’s have a chat

D is for Dodgy, how fishy is that?

 

E is for Engaged, when the phone line is busy

F is for Fiddle Sticks, when you get in a tizzy

G is for Gobsmacked, which means you’re amazed

So How’s Your Father, now go and get laid.
