10apr22: adding childhood ditties.

Childhood Ditties, that I still remember. Links are examples; these were common, like folk songs.

  • Molly Malone
    “Singing cockles and mussels, alive, alive-O.”
  • Mares Eat Oats (1948)
    “Mairzy dotes and dozey dotes and little lamsey divey. A kiddly divey too, wouldn’t you?”
  • Be Kind to Your Web-Footed Friends
    When I heard it, growing up, it was “for they live in the cold and the damp” with the last word as pronounced in this video

Sentimental songs, from the 1950s and 1960s.
