Should it not be {'arlogh Qoylu'pu'}?

What if the time is like half past three, then how many times have you heard it? 1530 times?? 3.5 times?

BTW: where I live, this expression is not really that old. Almost every church nearby has this huge bell to 
call the the believers to come. And every hour, it tells the time. And then, sometimes people say "I didn't 
count. How many times did you hear it?" ---> 'arlogh Qoylu'pu'? :-)
