Fuh Tehressa:

POT TELLING KETTLE HE BOTTOM BLACK- Pointing out fault in someone when you have de same fault yourself

"CRAPO SMOKE YUH PIPE"- Yuh ass is grass

"MONKEY KNOW WHAT TREE TO CLIMB"- Irritating person knows who to pester

what sweet in goat mouth sour in ur buttom- What at first blush might seem pleasant and fun...may not be that way after all.

who stink fuh you you rotten fuh dem- If someone treats you bad, treat them worse...I guess.

*yuh could know somebody by de friends dey keep- Self explanatory ("Birds of a Feather...", "Lay down with dogs....")

*moon does run but day does ketch it- Your sins eventually catch up to you...

Rain falling, sun shinin'...monkey marridin'- signifies a rare occasion

Never see, come see- someone who makes a big production over something commonplace (seeing snow etc.)

Put an spoke in yuh wheel...- Put a kink in someone's plans

"if god spare meh life"- similar to ''God-willing"

idle dog worry sheep. - same gist as "the devil finds work for idle hands". Occupy yourself with something productive and you'll stay outta trouble.
