So, with sparrows and owls, With rats and with dogs,
With ducks and with crows, With cats and with hogs,
A fine song I have made, To please you, my dear;
And if it's well sung, 'T will be charming to hear.
A cat came fiddling Out of a barn,
With a pair of bagpipes Under her arm;
She could sing nothing But fiddle cum dee,
The mouse has married The bumble-bee;
Pipe, cat; dance, mouse:
We'll have a wedding At our good house.
