Some song lyrics misheard over the cafe hubbub…

But first…
Dulltown, UK/Europe: Today’s ancient British expletive is Od’s Bodkins! A corruption of ‘God’s body’.
In 19th c. ‘flash’ or slang another ‘Bodikin’ was also well-known as a contraction of ‘Bawdy-ken’ or brothel, perhaps making the oath a risqué pun for those in the know
. From the very interesting book: Bozzimacoo: Origins of Oaths and Swear Words by Mary Marshall [1975]

‘Gob spore, gob spore, gob spore, clow-oun, clow-oun.’
‘I wanna be seething on the vine now baby.’
‘Way me go – dancers pawned me bags!…’
‘I feel the dregs scrub me down girl!’
‘Gonna leave, tines tines – no no, I feel sagged.’
‘Whaa, whaa, whaa, whaa…’
‘I’m down with a frog-horn, I don’t have no feelin’…’
‘Come on girl – find a pun! Find a pun!’
‘Within the lamp of sparking foam, I’m happy as a harp.’
‘Walk away as a walrus – baby, this is the best thing!’
‘How up! Awah awah awah awah!’
‘The pale trap of the arrow – love you – you heel spot!’
‘Guppy high, my eye juice sighs, eye-e-eye, eye-e-eye.’
‘So much I was upty-way okay – give me an amelon.’
‘I drifted back to wires, it was a treat of knees…’
‘Strangeness changes, the oaf go slow moments…’
‘You ain’t got a Velásquez no more!…’
‘Just mimbo dips from a tightening morning…’
‘Forever strong, tubular girl, you kind of shine…’
