    i actually went to a school in bedford. we were still living in cambs, duno why i went all the way there though. i was young and did what my parents thought was best
    anyway, then i got into hills road and thought it would be better as i wanted a change and it was close to home.

    I don't think the origin is known but here are some possibles...
    Advice to a child learning its letters to be careful not to mix up the handwritten lower-case letters p and q.
    Similar advice to a printer’s apprentice, for whom the backward-facing metal type letters would be especially confusing.
    Jocular, or perhaps deadly serious, advice to a barman not to confuse the letters p and q on the tally slate, on which the letters stood for the pints and quarts consumed “on tick” by the patrons.
    An abbreviation of mind your please’s and thank-you’s.
    Instructions from a French dancing master to be sure to perform the dance figures pieds and queues accurately.
    An admonishment to seamen not to soil their navy pea-jackets with their tarred queues, that is, their pigtails.
    Wow, not bad. Where'd you find all that?

    I'm not sure of the precise quote but this is the general idea of it, from Austin Powers 3 "Welcome to my submarine, it's long and hard and full of seamen."
