"There is a rhyme my mother-in-law recited 40 years ago and there are still locals who know it but the final lines vary. The first four lines have a sort of See Saw Marjory Daw rhythm. I learnt this on the Island of Elba Tuscany and the nearest I can get on internet is Seta Moneta." -Janet


*or "babbo" = father
**Ambarabà is a nonsense word
(Note: there's a well-known rhyme called Ambarabà ciccì coccò.)
