Idioms from A-Z
Ace up your sleeve
Add fuel to the fire
Afraid of your own shadow
Air you dirty laundry
All that glitters is not gold
Ants in your pants
At the end of your rope
Back to square one
Beat around the bush
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder
Beggars can’t be choosers
Bite your tongue
Blood is thicker than water
Bright-eyed and bushy-tailed
Bury your head in the sand
Calm before the storm
Cat got your tongue
C’est la vie
Couch potato
Cross that bridge when you come to it
Cry over spilled milk
Dose of one’s own medicine
Dressed to kill
Early bird catches the worm
Eat your heart out
Elbow grease
Food for thought
Full of hot air
Get this show on the road
Get your feet wet
Gift of gab
Go over with a fine-tooth comb
Grasp at straws
Hands are tied
Have a bone to pick with you
Have a screw loose
Have your cake and eat it too
Head over heels
Hold your horses
If the shoe fits
Ignorance is bliss
In one ear and out the other
In the limelight
In the nick of time
It takes two to tango
Jump down my throat
Kill two birds with one stone
Knock on wood
Knock your socks off
Lend an ear
Light at the end of the tunnel
Like pulling teeth
Make ends meet
Midas touch
Monkey business
Necessity is the mother of invention
Nothing ventured, nothing gained
Off the top of your head
On cloud nine
On the double
Open a can of worms
Over the hill
Pass the buck
Put your best foot forward
Put your foot in your mouth
Quick on the draw
Rain check
Read between the lines
Real McCoy
Rock the boat
Rolling stone gathers no moss
Shake a leg
Shoe is on the other foot
Spitting image
Throw caution to the wind
Turn the other cheek
Under the weather
Up against the wall
Wash your hands of something
Wet behind the ears
Where there’s smoke, there’s fire
Wild-goose chase
Wolf in sheep’s clothing
You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him drink
I wasn’t born yesterday
Zip your lips
