Could well be forest akenaton. The pronunciation is forrress, which I'd took to be furze, but forest make more sense I think.

We will make 'er thick and slab

The Dictionary of the Scots Language has an entry for verb slab, meaning To slaver, esp. when at one's food, to eat or drink in a messy, untidy way, to slobber.
