Hold her Newt, she's a rearin'

Hold her Newt, she's a rearin'
This was something my folks used to say whenever anything or anyone got out of control. For some unknown reason I've started saying it. Anybody else use this expression or started using this or another to their own surprise?

As kids, we never heard the correct saying "Don't let the bed bugs bite.."
Dad always said "Don't let the bugs bite the bed."

I didn't know that it wasn't right until I was an adult!

Never heard of that one, but have said - " hold your horses" for impatient people.

Hold 'er, Newt--yep, I can still hear my dad saying that. When I was really little, I thought it was all one word--holdernute--that meant "slow down".

Googled it--Google Answers: Origin of phrase "Hold 'er Newt"

I sometimes refer to my grandson as Buster Brown. Does anyone else remember Buster Brown?

what I remember is a rhyme I learned;

hiya kids hiya
my name is Buster Brown
I live in a shoe
I have a dog Tige
He lives there too
hiya kids hiya

Don't have a clue where that rhyme came from, I learned it from my middle sister

Buster Brown shoes come to mind:
