Dingle dingle doosey

Melody -

Dingle dingle doosey,
The cat's in the well,
The dog's away to Bellingen
To buy the bairn a bell.

A dingle doosey (or dousie) is a piece of wood burned red at one end as a toy for children. The mother whirls round the glowing stick very fast, giving the eye the impression of a red circle.
