Notice how the pronunciation of “the” changes, when the next word begins with a vowel, to /ðij/. The “t” at the end of “got” is assimilated by the “b” of “bells”, so we pronounce it with lips, not tongue, pausing between the two sounds, but keeping the lips closed. You’ll need to practise.
We can say this instead of “You’re pulling my leg”. (See the last post). Often We just say “Pull the other one”.
