• I don't know about the first one but I thought the other was "Does eat oats and mares eat oats and little lambs eat ivy".....?
  • Isn't is Mairzy doats and dozy doats, And liddle lamzy divy. A kiddly divy too, Wouldn't you?
  • I'm looking for it too. Milton Drake, co-writer of Maizy Doats, said the inspiration for Mairzy Doats came from hearing his daughter reciting the English nursery rhyme "Cowzy tweet". All I've found is the first line you list, with possibly a second line of "A squiddely doisters two, wooden shoe?" Similar rhymes I've seen include the phrases "liddle bearzy tunny" or "liddle clamsy dalgy; Officially dalgy two, wooden shoe?"
  • Correction - in my answer "algy" should be "dalgy" (or even "towel gee") (I've corrected it)
