Brooklyn accent pronunciation?

I'm in a play and have to do a "Brooklyn gangster accent." I've got it down pretty well but I could use help on a couple words.

earth

Lois

here

there's

    earth - 'oith' or 'oit'

    Lois - not sure, maybe "los"

    here - 'hea'

    there's - 'dehs'

    edit: also depends on what time period - substituting "oy" for "er" is kind of out of style.
