with the [Pied Pipers},

I overheard the strangest talk right here beside me on the walk,
A little boy and girl of three, here's how it sounded to me:
Dai dut the denny in a dum-dot, dai dut the denny in a dum-dot
Do det the daper and dai det the dum, cause dai dut the denny in the dum-dot.
[What's you say?]
I put the penny in the gum-slot, I put the penny in the gum-slot,
You get the paper and I get the gum, 'cause I put the penny in the gum-slot.
[Eeny meeny minee mo, turn the handle, let it go,]
[Peppermint flavor yummy yum, I got the penny and I get the gum,]
['Cause dai dut the denny in the dum-dot,] I put the penny in the gum-slot.
Do det the daper and dai det the dum
Cause dai dut the denny in the dum-dot.

[Dai dut the denny in the dum-dot, dai dut the denny in the dum-dot.]
[You get the paper and I get the gum, Dai dut the denny in the dum-dot.]
[Put penny in a penny machine, not carin' if it's yellow or green,]
[I'm gonna chew, won't give it to you, (won't?) you know what I mean.]

Tol' the girlie, an' tol' the lad, if you quarrel, I'll be sad.
Made it fair for everyone, gave them the paper and I kept the gum.
[Dai, dai dut the denny in the dum-dot,] I put the penny in the gum-slot.
