you're 'as sly as a fox' and 'run me ragged' in fact you 'run circles around me', 'a right rigmorole' and 'that said' i'm going to 'send you to coventry' unless you give me 'a helping hand'.
'You've got me wrapped around your little finger' 'it's a merry dance you lead' with your 'wise cracks' and stop telling me 'to let sleeping dogs lie'.
i know 'there's nowt so queer as folks' so stop being 'sly as a fox' and thats the 'end of story'.
