Alexsandra wrote asking for help with a Welsh lap rhyme. Here’s her note…
Can anybody help me find an old Welsh nursery rhyme? It was an action rhyme which involved being bounced on a knee like a horsey ride. In very bad phonetics it goes as follows (I have the first line more than the others…), but the rhythmic structure below is correct…
‘ A doli per doli padink,
(Da dumdedum dumde da dink,
Didlle de doy, dodlle de doy,
Dodle dar disseye)
It was from my Grandma, from the time when Welsh was whacked out of them. I would really love to know it.
Thank you, Alexandra
