No, I did not lose my mind. It's just memories surfacing again.

I came all the way to LA to hear news about New York Central Park Zoo. They have new lambs. The lambs made me remember the song above.

I was on vacation on my first visit to Walt Disney World, mid to late 80's. We stayed at the Holiday Inn Maingate outside of WDW. They had entertainment each night in the hotel. Without fail, the entertainer would sing the above song. I think it was either his opening or ending.

That was a fun vacation.

If you don't get the lyrics, here's another part of the song...
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."


And if I remember right, the entertainer had a lamb puppet ... or am I mixing it with the Shari Lewis and Lamp Chop.
