Notes

*We believe that means pussycat was good at teasing birds.

Here's another version of this song from The Little Mother Goose (1912), illustrated by Jessie Willcox Smith:

A Cat Came Fiddling Out of a Barn

A cat came fiddling out of a barn.
With a pair of bag-pipes under her arm:
She could sing nothing but fiddle-cum-fee,
The mouse has married the bumble-bee;
Pipe, cat - dance, mouse,
We'll have a wedding at our good house.

Here's a version that Sasha sent:

The cat came fiddling out of the barn
With a pair of bagpipes under her arm
Though she could not sing a tune
Fiddle- cum – fee
The mouse has married the bumblebee
Pipe cat, dance mouse
We'll have a wedding at our good house!
