Subject: Lealand's song

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.
