Stan Clee de clozy doe

#1
Just thought I'd introduce some phrases that our overseas friends may want to look up before they visit us this summer.

Phrases heard on the London Underground:
"Stan Clee de clozy doe." and it's alternative:
"Myndee clozy doe."

On street corners in London:
"Stanna.....stanna.......eeeeen stanna......stanna" (OK, maybe a bit rare now as there seems less enthusiasm nowadays).

Or, "Thank you, please.......please, thank you" - said in a heavy polish accent. (This is an invite to take a free newspaper and is used regardless of its title).

It's just possible that you may hear a phrase heard weekly in my childhood but very rare now:
"Rabo....rabo.....een rabo....rabo."


OK, can some Brits add to the list of utterances unlikely to be found in a phrase book? Or would Johhny Foreigner care to add some of their own for our edification?
