    İts slang. You can signify how surprised you are about sth. For example:

    Günter ist den Marathon unten 3 Stunden gelaufen. Alter falter!

    It is slang.

    Alter Falter = Wow
    If there is a rhyme it's often slang and can't be translated literally. For instance:
    Aus die Maus. -> Stop what you are doing.
    Alles fit im Schritt? -> How are you?/Are you fine?
