The Lyrics

Here's a parody oriented to children for you to enjoy. The song dates from 1943, but the amusing S,L and B version on You-tube is one of the few you can still find that has more than the first of the 3 original verses........ I haven’t eaten meat for 12 years. I am usually reserved and quiet about this peculiarity; however this old song presents an opportunity to proselytize.
My family thinks I’m nutty as a fruitcake
Have to hunt on menus, find what I can eat.
Some call it crazy
Others think it’s bravery,
They all should give up meat. Oh!

Linezy dews and wolvezy dews
And cougarcubz grabb ambies
A kiddley tunterstew, wouldn’t you? Yes.
Linezy dews and wolvezy dews
And cougarcubz grabb ambies
A kiddley tunterstew, wouldn’t you? If the

Words sound grim, go gripe to Uncle Jim,
He’ll dress you in your camo
Cause lions eat ewes, but you can choose
A rifle and some ammo. Oh!

Linezy dews and wolves eat ewes
And cougar-cubs grab Bambis
A kid’ll eat hunter’s stew, wouldn’t you? Yes.
A kiddley tunterstew, wouldn’t you?

Weazly dens and foxy dens
Raccoonzan crosey chickies
A kiddley creecherstoo, wouldn’t you? Oh!
Weazly dens and foxy dens
Raccoonzan crosey chickies
A kiddley creecherstoo, wouldn’t you? Now if the

Words sound grim, go gripe to Uncle Jim,
He’ll say, “Please be more plucky.
Cause weasl’ eat hens, and fox eat hens
And we’ll go shoot some duckies.” Oh!

Weazly dens and foxy dens
Raccoons and crows eat chickies
A kid’ll eat creatures too, wouldn’t you? Yuk!
A kiddley creecherstoo, wouldn’t you?

Menny menny damanlam
Why lothers snarfon tofu
A kiddley mea-freatu, wouldn’t you? Yes.
Menny menny damanlam
Why lothers snarfon tofu
A kiddley mea-freatu, wouldn’t you? Now

Uncle Jim says, “Queer!” while chugging down a beer,
He’ll never understand it;
Some men eat beef and ham and lamb
While some respect the planet.

Many men eat ham and lamb
While others snarf on tofu
A kid’ll eat meat-free too, shouldn’t you? Yes, a
Kiddley mea-freatu, a
Kiddley mea-freatu, a
Kiddley mea-freatu, shouldn’t you? Tofu!

Sheesh, I guess somebody here isn't a "Mairzy Doats" fan. I'm guessing Gramps used to sing this to you, right GCG?

@CML; My 'nonnino' used to sing me exclusively old Neapolitan songs like "Surrender", "It's Now or Never" and "Volare". You are right that I always thought that "Mairzy Doats" was a dumb song. Although ivy is not the most toxic species in the garden, it causes skin sensitivity, and can release cyanides when ingested. So if your little lamb or kid, human or otherwise, eats "divey", you should call your Poison Control Center (sec. code Q64).

Once you get the spelling figured out, this is quite funny. I still have trouble with the original, too. The reference to hunting and being hunted I found amusing. People, too can sometimes end up at the wrong end of the food chain. This would make a good recording, if someone out there has the talent. Would also be a bit more comprehensible than the eccentric spelling. Nobody writes nonsense songs anymore. Lots of songs that make no sense, but nothing like the 1940's. If I used the number system I would give you 555 celery sticks.

@Patrick;Thanks for your comments, and also the celery sticks. I usually enjoy mine with various cheese spreads - although that would not be acceptable to our colleague Vegan Minstrel. I wish that yahoos like Carney-Eater would have more respect and not use my thread to attack others.

Next time you do celery sticks, put on the bacon cheese spread, add ground cooked hamburger, and top with sour cream!!! Helluva lot better than plain! Or just spray on some cheese from a can!
