born within the sound of Bow bells

born within the sound of Bow bells

Refers to those who have a cockney accent. If you are "born within the sound of Bow bells," you are born near St. Mary-le-Bow Church in London's East End. Primarily heard in UK. I have no idea what she said. I guess it's because she was born within the sound of Bow bells, and I can never quite understand a cockney accent.
