: What does "put a pony in my pocket" mean? It is used in the opening song of the TV series 'Only Fools and Horses'.

It's "Stick a pony in me pocket, I'll get the suitcase from the van..." I believe that a pony is 25 pounds (money), so the song is saying slip me some money on the sly, and I'll go get the goods. The characters in the show specialize in shady deals, stuff that's fallen off the back of trucks, etc. RRC
