Lily Bellied : Phrases


Used in the southern U.S. to describe a coward.


Why, Coh-nel Jaynkuns, I do buh-leev thayt those lileh behl-uhd Yankuhs hayuhv buhnd At-layn-tuh tuh tha gra-ownd!


You can't just say lilly-bellied any ol' way. It has to be pronounced with a broad Southern aristocratic accent. (Think: Gone With the Wind.) Ideally, you should be holding a mint julep in your hand when you say this. Thanks to Cornucopia & Ivan K.
