Do You Know the Words to this Song? (ever-so-slightly off topic)

Hi All,

My dad's cousins used to sing a song that started:

Gomats kaleh Aghavni goshig, go sheeget chela

Walk slowly, Agnes, so your shoe doesn't fall off

They turned "Aghavni" "Dove" into "Agnes" in English.

No one left in my family remembers the rest of the song. If you know the words or anything about the song: who wrote it, when ... I'd really appreciate hearing from you.

I thought about this when the news came out last week that a 5500 year old shoe was found in a cave in Armenia. So THAT'S where Agnes' lost shoe went, I thought ... :-)
