From:   Hollandsong. Oberon Press, 1975.


Oh, de wif wiffle de hubband,
de wif wiffle de hubband,
de wif wiffle de hubband,
and de hubband hubble de wif.

Crumpet-toasting time again
with ginger for de hubband,
wif-tummack, hubband-tummack
cocoa-happy all de day

Mumbly hubband, nipply wif,
playin’ a came o’ grib,
fifteen-four, eleventy-leven,
libble, nubble, all de day

Wif find de hubband-belly,
hubband find de tit,
pigeon find de pigeon-place,
coo and libble all de day

Oh, de lubband and de fif
lub and fiffle all de day,
lub and fiffle,
fub and liffle,
hub and wiffle all de day.
