Bronx-ese



Back in the days of yore, people from the Bronx [a borough of NY City]
had their own unique pronunciation; maybe they still do.  Here are a
couple of verses in Bronx-ese:


THIRTY PURPLE BIRDS

Toity poiple boids
Set'n on der coib
A 'choipin' and a' boipin'
An' eat'n doity woims.


THE BUDDING BRONX

Der spring is sprung
Der grass is riz;
I wonder where dem boidies is?

Der little boids is on der wing;
Ain't dat absoid?
Der little wings is on der boid!
