Miss Lucy’s Playground Songs

Mairzy Doats

Posted on: February 25, 2009

We have all heard this part I think:

Mairzy doats and dozy doats and liddle lamzy divey
A kiddley divey too, wouldn’t you?
Mairzy doats and dozy doats and liddle lamzy divey
A kiddley divey too, wouldn’t you?

But this end part makes this song make much more sense.

If the words sound queer and funny to your ear, a little bit jumbled and jivey,
Sing “Mares eat oats and does eat oats and little lambs eat ivy.”

Wikipedia goes into the history of this song – in that it was composed in 1943 by Milton Drake, Al Hoffman and Jerry Livingston.
