scraped all the hairs off the top of my back.

Oh, I am the merriest mouse That lives anywhere in a house! I love toasted cheese, and I love crusts of bread, And bits of old paper to make a soft bed. Oh! I tell you it's nice To be one of the mice, And when the night comes, And the folks are abed, To rattle and race On the floor overhead. And, say, don't you wish you could run up a wall As I do, every day, without getting a fall? And don't you wish you were a mouse, Living in somebody's house?
