My Father and uncle used to put us on their knees and bounce us and say this rhyme. Something about a fox. I don’t know if they were speaking Swedish or English (and pronouncing the words badly)…
“A raven come a walkin
a balkin, a talkin a piddlee peekin.”
They’d start down at our bellies and work their hand up under our chins.
Have you ever heard of this?
Thank you for your time,
If anyone can help out with any information about this rhyme and/or provide the words to it, please comment below.
Thanks in advance!
