I’m the talk,
I’m the talk of the town
I’m the dish
I’m the dish of the day
I’m as drunk
I’m as drunk as a lord
I’m as high
I’m as high as a kite

The bird in the hand lets the cat out the bag
It weighs a tonne and sticks out a mile

I've an axe
I've an axe to grind
I've a bone
I've a bone to pick
I've an itch
I've an itch to scratch
don’t count chickens
before they hatch

You’re a flash
a flash in the pan
you’re a red flag
a red flag to a bull
you’re as hard
you’re as hard as nails
you’ve gone off
gone off the rails

When it comes
when it comes to the crunch
you’ll be out
you’ll be out to lunch
I won’t beat
won’t beat about the bush
that’s your lot
‘cos you’ve lost the plot
