I've heard of the one Bill's mother from a Yorkshire friend.
My mum used to say shepherds warning one.
Look before you leap. Does that count?
Also something about mickle and muckle????
"Many a mickle macks a muckle," I think. Not sure what it means.
"Where there's muck there's brass."
"Where there's life, there's hope ... and need of vittles, as me ol' Gaffer used to say." - Samwise Gamgee, The Lord Of The Rings
The water one's in a half-appropriate song!
You'd better look before you leap; still waters run deep,
and there won't always be someone there to pull you out,
and you know what I'm talking about,
so smile for a while and let's be jolly.
Love shouldn't be so melancholy.
Come along and share the good times while we can.
I beg your pardon.
I never promised you a rose garden.
Along with the sunshine,
There's gotta be a little rain some time.
"Barking dogs don't bite." (The ones putting on a show are just doing that. It's the quiet one sneaking into place for the kill that really means it.)
"Don't **** on your own doorstep."

"Bull____ baffles brains." (Smart people get stumped trying to make sense of utter nonsense and stupidity)
