The people began to hear singing echoing through the trees. It was high-pitched and merry, and what few words they could catch seemed silly, or else like pure nonsense. As they traveled further into the forest they could hear the song more clearly:

“Hey-yay, a-rink-a-dink-day, sit in the tree and watch me play.
Hing-ying, a-munk-a-yunk-thing, listen to us as we sing.

I am like you and you’re like me, ark-a-larka-middle-dee-ay.
The two of us are elves, you see, ark-a-larka-middle-dee-ay.
We sleep all night and sing all day, ark-a-larka-middle-dee-um.
We laugh at everything we say, ark-a-larka-middle-dee-um.

Hee-yee, a-rink-a-dink-tree, come on and laugh along with me.
Hing-ying, a-munk-a-yunk-thing, listen to us as we sing.”
