Paul Gogojuice asked the following question on the Mama Lisa’s World Facebook Group:
Hi all. My grandmother is full Finnish and as a child she always had 2 different sayings that she’d say to us. I don’t know how to spell them or anything, but I’m going to do my best to explain them.
The first one was about a bird coming to get you. It sounded like “Keeva kava, asa houka toula. Skoopy skoopy skoopy”.
The second was about a pastor coming for dinner and sounded like “poplien appel poppel dopple” or something like that.
Any help would be amazing and would make my 10 siblings VERY happy. Thanks so much.
If anyone can help Paul, please let us know in the comments below.
