Published in London 1744 Tommy Thumb's Pretty Song Book contained the well known nursery rhyme Hickory Dickory Dock. Ewe are fully aware that this involves the vertical scrolling of a mouse up and then down a clock.As ewe are also aware that this would happen at 1 'o' clock twice a day. lets face it, the mouse is well and truly fed up and has invited those ertswhile little beings known as Mousey-Scrolly-Fairies to spread a little mousey-magicky-scrolly-dust and thus enable it to be free from going up and down for a while.Do not fret. This will pass. Mousey-magicky-scrolly-dust is at best just a temporary measure and normal service should be resumed fairly soon.If this fails there is chant that can be recited but it involves standing in a field with one leg in a bucket and the other rammed up a sleeping cows backside....one must also wear a handkerchief atop your head and have three snails stuck vertically on the nape of your neck.The chant goes thus:Oh Arse of Cow and Bucket LegWith kerchief adorn and snails upon neckI release my mouse from woe and ills allSo that I may enjoy the vertical scrollCite this three times whilst turning and ending with a cartwheeling pirouette and all should be fine.Glad I could help
