Notes

Élodie sent us this variation:

Estaba el señor Don Gato
Sentadito en su tejado
Miarrau miau miau miau
Sentadito en su tejado.

Cuando le vinieron nuevas
Que había de ser casado
Miarrau miau miau miau
Que había de ser casado.

Con una gatita parda
Con un pinta en el rabo
Miarrau miau miau miau
Con un pinta en el rabo.

El gato de la alegría
Se ha caído del tejado
Miarrau miau miau miau
Se ha caído del tejado.

Se ha roto siete costillas
Y la puntita del rabo
Miarrau miau miau miau
Y la puntita del rabo.

Le llevaron a enterrar
Por la calle del pescado
miarrau miau miau miau
Por la calle del pescado.

Al olor de las sardinas
Don Gato ha resucitado
Miarrau miau miau miau
Don Gato ha resucitado.

English Translation

Lord Tom Cat was
Sitting on his roof,
Marrameow, meow, meow, meow,
Sitting on his roof.

He received news
Saying he had to get married,
Marrameow, meow, meow, meow,
Saying he had to get married.

With a grey kitty
With a spot on her tail,
Marrameow, meow, meow, meow,
With a spot on her tail.

The cat in his exuberance
Fell down from the roof,
Marrameow, meow, meow, meow,
Fell down from the roof.

He broke seven ribs
And the end of his tail,
Marrameow, meow, meow, meow,
And the end of his tail.

He's taken to be buried,
Through the street of the fishmongers,
Marrameow, meow, meow, meow,
Through the street of the fishmongers.

Smelling some sardines,
Lord Tom Cat was resuscitated.
Marrameow, meow, meow, meow,
Lord Tom Cat was resuscitated.
