My grandmother is turning 90 and I am putting together a scrapbook. I saw your website and thought maybe you could help me. I am looking for the Polish writing of a hand play my grandmother taught me. It is about a mama chicken who has five baby chicks that she is feeding. She only has enough food for four chicks (four fingers on hand) so she has to throw out (or maybe worse – chop off the head of the fifth?)
It sounds something like this:
Jub a wha cork a sca jep jelk yik pully cha wha screen ya sa thima dowel thima dowel thima dowel thima dowel a pully cok a ja two pierce two cousa (4X) a pulley jus jus a wha (tickle under arm).
Would you know of anyone who might be able to help?
Thanks so much,
If anyone can help with these lyrics, please comment below or email me.
