    get top of one's head

    a man is given an ultimatum.
    he says "i'm telling you now, if he speaks to me like that again, he'll get top of me head" (pointing to his head while saying this)
    i gather he's not happy and maybe feeling under pressure, and i think he means to say "he'll drive me mad " or something like that ?... but i have never heard the expression "get top of one's head" ... what does that mean exactly ?

    thanks

    I don't think this is an English idiom. I've never heard of it either.
