Lyrics and Chords

[ F#dim7 = xx1212 ]

I know a ditty nutty as a fruitcake
Goofy as a goon and silly as a loon
Some call it pretty, others call it crazy
But they all sing this tune

/ F C7 F C7 / F C7 F - / Am E9 Am D7 / G7 - C7 - /

Mairzy doats and dozy doats and liddle lamzy divey
A kiddley divey too, wouldn't you

/ F - - F#dim7 / Gm7 C7 F - /

Yes, {Refrain}

If the words sound queer and funny to your ear
A little bit jumbled and jivey
Sing, "Mares eat oats and does eat oats
And little lambs eat ivy"

/ Cm7 F7 Cm7 F7 / Bb - - - / Dm7 G7 Dm7 G7 / C Gm7 C7 - / 

Oh, {Refrain}

... / Gm7 C7 F F#dim7 /

A kid'll eat ivy too, wouldn't you

/ Gm7 C7 F - /
