Not exactly an old Brummie saying, but whilst reading about Waterloo, when the British soldiers bayonet charged the Frenchies, they did with the yell "Let's give 'em Brummagem".

Birmingham being the main centre of manufacture of bayonets,  hence give em Brummagem....and the Frogs did not like it up em............. O0

Sorry if this one has already been posted, but I haven't read all the way back.  My Grandma used to say "Round again you baa lambs",  for example if you missed a turning off a roundabout!
