My mom’s Norwegian father taught her two little ditties and I would love to know if we have them correct and what the correct spelling is. I’m going to spell phonetically…
Comin a man
Loppin a stoppin
ta-bick-en ta-boose (tickle, tickle)
Panabene (point to forehead)
Oyestene (point to eyes)
Nasatip (point to nose)
Monalip (point to lip)
Hagafip (point to chin)
(tickle under chin
