My little sister Heather got this music box/book for her birthday 1966.  I am nine years older than she is and I sang it hundreds of times. This is how I remember it.

my mom texted me and told me the song was from a play by E. Humperdink (not the singer) called hansel and Gretel.  You can find it on you tube, but don't know about the song if its on you tube, just a clip of the play.  But, there you go.  She told me she has the sheet music, but no lyrics, even though she sang it to us as kids.  And I think the ostrich part is O is for an ostrich with his head in the sand....don't know for sure.  but, hope this helps

ok, so the last post was correct, I found the opera on youtube and the words to that particular tune is not the abc one.  so I am assuming the abc song was adapted to the music from the music in his opera.  The scene the song is in, is when Gretel is in the woods alone, its called Gretels song.  but it is the tune I remember hearing my mom sing it in.  I will do some more research and find out about the alphabet part coming into it

Black socks, they never get dirty, the longer you wear them the stronger they get.
 

Sometimes I think I should wash them, but something inside me says, not yet, not yet, not yet.
