Oh! Yes! It was about halfway through WW II, the nation was war-weary, Hollywood came out with some goofy songs that I still sing as an 85-year-old! Bing Crosby was from my hometown and was at the top of his singing career, Bob Hope was the #1 comedian. Kids and their grandparents sang and danced to the tune. There are some sweet memories of the war years.

We had that in school, when we were being taught about enunciating our speaking. The teacher wrote the mairzydoats as all one long word & told us to read it. Of course it made no sense until she broke the words up, & began explaining about speaking clearly & to not run our words together.

My parents sang "Mairzy doats" and I think I heard it on the Radio in the mid 30s, when I was a youngster.  I started singing it and still do once in a while.

Comment was by Stephen Brodie on April 1, 2021 at 1:26pm

Thanks, Davy. Of all the years I've known that ditty i never once imagined there was any meaning to the song. Interesting.

Comment was by Chris B on April 1, 2021 at 12:01pm

Thanks Davy!

Comment was by Davy on April 1, 2021 at 11:22am

Oi Randall here we go mate

Mairzy doats and dozy doats and liddle lamzy divey
A kiddley divey too, wouldn't you?
Yes! Mairzy doats and dozy doats and liddle lamzy divey
A kiddley divey too, wouldn't you?

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"

“Mairzy Doats” is a novelty song written and composed in 1943 by Milton Drake, Al Hoffman, and Jerry Livingston.

Reminds me of the old song, "Mairseydotes and Doseydotes and Littlelambsedivy", or however it's spelled. I'll have to look it up. But you all know what that translates to.

Comment was by Chris B on April 1, 2021 at 4:49am

A good one, Loren, but I couldn't solve it.

Comment was by Mrs.B on March 31, 2021 at 6:45pm

Mine too, Joan.
