    Post Question about a sentence

    I have a question about the following sentence :

    "Donīt stare (too) long at me, girl..
    Silly words I tend to say"

    Is it necessary to use the "too" or can I just leave it without it?
    Or both are correct?


    Thank you.

    The "too" is necessary.

    Re: Question about a sentence

    thanks for your answer. I got one more.

    Thereīs a slang in Britain for "money", I believe itīs "bees and honey"

    Is it right to use it this way?

    "give me the bees and honey" or "give me some bees and honey"



    Thank you.

    Thank you.
    I'm not familiar with "bees and honey". It could be "Cockney Rhyming Slang" but I don't think it's genuine. It's more likely "Mockney Rhyming Slang". Try googling both terms.
