I stumbled upon this trying to find if the words we sang as a war cry at school actually meant anything. Devastated to find that flee fly is a song but quite pleased that the non commercial version is quite popular too. to add something to the mix, there was a song i learnt at school when i was about 7 and the words were

marezy-dotes and dozy dotes and liddy lambsy ivey
a kiddle dee divey doo, wood ant you. (thats about as phonetic as i can get) and then next verse which we learnt when we were 8 was

if the words sound queer and funny to your ear a little bit jumbled and jive-y, sing
mares eat oats and goats eat oats and little lambs eat ivy....

leaving me to assume the next line was a diw would eat ivy too, wouldn't you(?/ wood and chew.

i don't know but this makes me smile everytime it pops in my mind.

gutted about flee fly.
