Excerpt

2. In the barn a little mousie Ran to and fro; For she heard the little kitty, Long time ago.

3. Two black eyes had little kitty, Black as a crow; And they spied the little mousie, Long time ago.

4. Four soft paws had little kitty, Paws soft as snow; And they caught the little mousie, Long time ago.

5. Nine pearl teeth had little kitty, All in a row; And they bit the little mousie, Long time ago.

6. When the teeth bit little mousie, Mousie cried out "Oh!" But she slipped away from kitty, Long time ago.

4. At the end
