Princess Amelia learns to speak Cockerney

Posted on: April 30, 2012

Dearest Princess Amelia I hope that you are looking forward to your Royal Birthday celebrations, which I’m sure will much better than those of Queen Elizabeth who rules the Kingdom of United, because the Kingdom of City just isn’t good enough. I made a promise to you in my last post that there would be two posts this month to make up for the one I missed in March and here is the second one.

One day you may come to wonder why my name is Oncle Bill while all your other Uncles are in fact Uncles and not Oncles. Well there is a reason for that, I come from a land that is many, many, many miles from Godderwil where people speak in a rather strange way; Just like me really. Some of them even use rhymes instead of words. Such as; apples and pears for stairs, dog and bone for phone, mince pies for eyes and plates of meat for feet. But you only need to use the first word; apples, dog, minces and plates. People who speak like this come from the Kingdom of Cockney where their Royal Family wear pearly clothes. The people from that kingdom are known as cockneys, pronounced cockerneys. I am not a cockney, I come from a different part of London, pronounced Lahndahn, which is sometimes called the smoke.

So to help you understand these strange ways of speaking I thought I would choose a few songs that are sung with a Lahndahn accent. I think you should try and sing along and pretend to be a Lahndahner when you do. Get Mummy and Daddy to help and to join in as well.

And finally here is how not to speak Lahndahnese or cockerney;

Hi Oncle Bill, My daddy thinks this is probably the best selection of songs yet. He and I have been singing very loudly and out of tune (well daddy is out of tune). Another brilliant blog thank you very much. I love you. Love Amelia xxx
