Lagom Food. Lagom Philosophy.

Marsey dotes, Mares eat oats

Marsey dotes, Mares eat oats

Maresy dotes
And dosey dotes
And liddle lambsey tivey
A kiddley tivey too.
Wooden ewe?

Mares eat oats
And does eat oats,
And little lambs eat ivy.
A Kid will eat ivy too,
Wouldn’t you?

From “Seedy Songs and Rotten Rhymes – the Poetry of the Playground” in the Online Dictionary of Playground Slang.
