You wore tights till you were ten,

They kept your goolies cosy;

Now tights it seems are not for men,

Unless you ride the toby*.



*ride the toby – to practise highway robbery.

Beale, P. (Ed.) (1984)  A Dictionary of Slang and Unconventional English London: Routledge. pp. 1242

‘Men in tights’ song from Robin Hood: Men in Tights (1993) Columbia Tristar/20th Century fox film
