Excerpt

before you could
count ONE, TWO, THREE,
cut right through the rope.

3

How many Lives has the Cat got?

EIGHT!
But, when she was rounder,
A boy tried to drown her;
So how many Lives has the Cat got?

4

Yes, a boy tried to drown her
When fatter and rounder,
But, as you would wish,
She slipped the stone off her neck,
and before you could count,
ONE, TWO, THREE, swam
like a fish.

5

How many Lives has the Cat got?

SEVEN!
But, as I have learnt,
Poor Pussy was burnt.
