The word is CHARVA and they're from NEWCASTLE (and/or anywhere around the North East of England). The word ISN'T CHAV and they did not originate in The Sun or in Essex. Chavs have only just became publisised. Charvas have exisited in Newcastle for YEARS. (Especially in metro stops past North Shields)

scum of the north east. typically sporting the latest "trakkie B's" , Rockport boots and Berghaus jacket. Males usually wear fake burberry baseball cap at 45 degree angle, females prefer to sport the charva fringe acheived by curling the fringe around a coke can and laquering with half a can of hair spray. Charvas can often be found in most places, particular street corners and parks drinking their "tinnies" and bellabrusco or any cheap drink ending in brusco. Both sexes prefer to drape themselves in cheap jewellery and can often be seen smoking their favourite tabs lambert and butlers whilst shouting "way aye yee mug" or "you daft c*nt"

I generally see charvas strutting round in newcastle wearing: tog 24 jackets, gold loop earrings about the size of a hula hoop, rock ports, and dreadful "gold" chain necklaces of clowns and the like.
"Wot ya think ya's deein?! gannin roond eeaa, a'll ****in' marr ya!" and "ha ya goth the time?!" and throwing in either "ee", "how", "like" or "man" at the end of each sentence.

A song on Frank Zappa's Mystery Disc.

Charva has left him, and he wants her back. He swears that he truly loved her, and continues to do so. You get the feeling she isn't going to go back to him, though.
Selected lyrics:

"I loved you since in grammar school
When we were sniffing glue..."

"Charva, my darling,
The only love I had,
I hope you will forgive me dear,
For punching out your dad..."

"Charva, oh, Charva,
I love you more and more,
I swear it ain't because your father
owns a liquor store..."
