Lisa, maybe you can help me with a poem my mother (now 78) learned from her grandmother when she was a child. I believe it is German and she has no idea what it means but has asked many people the meaning and has never found out. Your help would be greatly appreciated. It goes something like this (of course the spelling is off):
Oddly boddlee finga hoof
Steck ta bow wow
Bow wow schnauz
If anyone can help David with the original words to this rhyme and/or a translation, please let us know in the comments below.
