Pussy-cat Mew Jumped Over a Coal

Pussy-cat Mew jumped over a coal,
And in her best petticoat burnt a great hole.
Poor Pussy's weeping, she'll have no more milk
Until her best petticoat's mended with silk.

Notes

Here's a slightly different version from The Little Mother Goose (1912), illustrated by Jessie Willcox Smith:

Pussy Cat Mole

Pussy Cat Mole,
Jump'd over a Coal,
And in her best petticoat burnt a great hole.
Poor pussy's weeping, she'll have no more milk
Until her best petticoat's mended with silk.

Comments

This rhyme can be found in The Real Mother Goose (1916), illustrated by Blanche Fisher Wright.
