the correct parsing for lealand's song (at least the first verse)
is as follows:
Mares eat oats and does eat oats
and little lambs eat ivy
a kid'll eat ivy too, wouldn't you?
the words are sung rapidly so that they merge together becoming
Marezy doats an' dozey doats
and little lamzy divy.
a kiddlee divy too, wouldn't you?
The song is originally from Danny Kaye, i believe. The man was a
master at singing songs so quickly that they become incomprehensible.
