What exactly is a "ghet?"

Ghet. I have heard the term in Beatles and Queen songs and I was just curious what it means. Obviously its British slang describing a person but what exactly?

If you mean what I think you mean its sort of a put down, Like idiot.... As in "you Stupid Get" "You thick get" "You lazy get"

Give me a lyric and I will tell you for certain

A local blues/jam band here in Alabama has a song that says "Ghet on in the ghet right."
