Lyrics

I know a ditty nutty as a fruitcake
Goofy as a goon and silly as a loon
Some call it pretty, others call it crazy
But they all sing this tune:.

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".

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

Moving around like the Pop It crew is the way to the perfect dance for you!
Some primates live in trees and some live on the land and in trees. In this episode we meet KINDERZOO’s finest primates like our host Gabby the Gibbon, Deni the Douc Langur, Marty the Mandrill, Colin the Colobus Monkey and Mike the Proboscis Monkey. We also learn how Mike got his large nose in Kinderzoo Tales.
In this episode we go on safari in Africa and meet Polly the Springbok Antelope, Harry the Hippopotamus, Rhiannon the Rhinoceros and we see two of our favourites running around – Debra the Forgetful Zebra and Ryan the Lion. Our KInderzoo Tale this week is about how Gerry the Giraffe got his long neck.

Information About Mares Eat Oats

Originally titled Mairzy Doats, it was written in 1943 by Milton Drake. Al Hoffman and Jerry Livingston. It was recorded for the first time by Al Trace and his Silly Symphonists. WOR New York was the first radio station to play the song.

The song is based on an old English nursery rhyme. Drake's four year old daughter came home reciting the old rhyme, and he found it interesting. It was made popular when it hit the pop charts in 1944 with the version performed by The Merry Macs.

RB singer Tommy Ridgely recorded a version in 1958, and Carlo Mastangelo of the Belmonts turned it into an up tempo rock and roll song in 1963. Sherry Lewis sang it several times on her program Lamb Chops Play Along.

Alan Alda, as Hawk Eye Pierce, used it to teach English to Koreans on the T.V. show MASH. It was even used as a computer password in an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation. It has become so popular, that it has even been turned into a square dance call.

This version has other animals in it

Dogs eat bugs and birds eat bugs.
And little owls eat liver.
A kid will eat liver too, wouldn't you.

Whailzy deals and sealzy deals
And baby fishy doysters,
A squiddley doysters too,
Wouldn't you?
Well if the words sound queer,
And funny to your ear,
All of you girlsters and boysters,
Say, ' Whales eat eels
And seals eat eels,
And baby fish eat oysters!"
Whales eat eels and seals eat eels
And baby fish eat oysters,
A squid will eat oysters too,
Wouldn't you?

A whale will eat oysters too,
A squid will eat oysters too,
A kid will eat ivy too,.

Wouldn't you?

Cowzy day and goatzy day
And little pigzy donuts;
A kiddely donuts, too, wouldn't you?
(Repeat)
Now if the words sound queer,
And funny to your ear,
You think you're gonna go nuts,
Say cows eat hay, and goats eat hay,
And little pigs eat donuts.

This is just a single verse

Mares eat oats and
