Mairzy Doats

Alternative Lyrics & Related Songs

This version is a little bit sillier

Oh, mairzy doats and dozy doats and little lambsy divey
A kiddle divey, too. Wouldn't you?
Oh, mairzy doats and dozy doats and little lambsy divey.

A kiddle divey, too. Wouldn't you?

If the words sound queer and funny to your ear,
A little bit jumbled and jivey.
Say, "Mares eat oats and does eat oats
and little lambs eat ivy".

Oh, mairzy doats and dozy doats and little lambsy divey
A kiddle divey, too. Wouldn't you?
Oh, mairzy doats and dozy doats and little lambsy divey
A kiddle divey, too. Wouldn't you?

My daddy sang this to me all the time when I was young, I was born in 1951!

As a little kid growing up in Vermont in the 1940's I heard this song a lot on the radio, years before we ever got a TV. This brought back good memories. Thanks.

My Mom used to sing this to us. I am trying to make a CD of old songs for my granddaughter, that my Mother used to sing. Am excited to find this You Tube !

This song made the top of the charts in 1944. It was intended to be amusing, for WWII was going on and we needed things to amuse us, there was enough sad news happening in Europe and the Pacific.

T The song above is not politcally correct by today's standards, but it is one my daddy sang to me all my life. I've never heard it anywhere else. I believe it was probably a song that slaves sang to their children.

Has anyone ever heard of this song: Way down in Alabama when the breeze begins to sigh, seems to murmer softly just the sweetest lullabye, each dear old mammy in old Alabam' huddles and cuddles her own honey lamb, little picaninny close your eyes and go to sleep, moon is swingin' low and spooky shadows 'gin to creep, this melody brings a fond memory, take me back again to dear old Alabam'.
