I suspect a lot of people don't know about "Mairzy Doats."  It was a
popular novelty song of about 60 years ago.  The gimmick is that it's a
slurring of this:

	Mares eat oats, and does* eat oats	
	And little lambs eat ivy
	A kid'll** eat ivy too
	Wouldn't you?

	etc.

Just retro, nerdy and weird enough for Lynch and Frost to use.
