This saying came from a scotish clan called the 5th doogals, now known as the Douglas clan. This saying was first said by Lee Douglas IV its meaning, means out with the old (his mother who was a lady of the night) and in with the new (his mistress). Lee Douglas IV was jelous that his mother was sleeping around with the arch bishop of Spain David of Fenhamia. So he brung in his mistress a ladyboy of bangcock. So basically that's where the saying comes from.
