Hello,

I am looking for any information on two Frisian nursery rhymes. They sound like this but the spelling may be way off:

1) Schnip Schnap Schnie
Deita Dey
Di men a bek
Das schpit von Speckoschney

2) Hoop me da pitch ana meullen tong
Pics na itch an hovens brau
Hovens brau an kopf kopf kopf
Dau light pitchi finie drock drock drock

Thank you very much for any help you can lend!

Thanks in advance!
