I guess "midge" is a term a bit like "mott" in the later verse.
Yes the addition of "other" helps the scan, I usually sing that. There are a few minor differences like that but I highlighted the miss/midge difference as it was fairly relevant to the rhyme, but things don't always have to rhyme exactly.
I guess it's best to sing what makes sense and comfort to the singer. If that didn't happen then there'd be no variations to songs generally.
