Children Nursery Songs
Dingty, diddledy

Dingty, diddledy, my mammy's maid,
She stole oranges, I am afraid,
Some in her pocket, some in her sleeve,
She stole oranges, I do believe.


Four and twenty tailors
Went to kill a snail,
The best man among them
Durst not touch her tail.

She put out her horns
Like a little Kyloe cow:
Run, tailors, run,
Or she'll kill you all e'en now.
