Mensagem:  Interestingly, "mind you" seems to be the only current and commonly used form of a slew of such old-fashioned terms:  "mind me", "mind your mother", "mind the teacher", etc - generally meaning to do as one is told.

Oh yes, we still use "never mind" (short for 'never you mind') very commonly - meaning: "forget about that" or "don't pay attention to that".
