Robbie once nicked Mel C’s jibe at Liam Gallagher (“Comm ’n have a gor if yer think your ’ard enough”) for ‘Millennium’. Similarly, he’s used “ner ner ner ner ner” from ‘Ring A Ring O’ Roses’ and ‘I’m The King Of The Castle’ – nursery rhymes about the plague and taxes – as the hook for this comeback. Luckily for you, Robbie, I’ve run out of words before mentioning your shameful patois.
