Can Anyone Help with a Canadian Song with the Line, "Up in the mountains, that’s the place to be"?

Marianne wrote asking for help with a Canadian song her grandma sang to her.  Here’s her note:

Dear Mama Lisa,

My cousin and I are trying to find the words to a song (possibly a nursery rhyme) that our grandmother use to sing to us.

My grandparents were from Nova Scotia, Canada. 

Here’s what we can remember:

Up in the mountains, that’s the place to be . .
listen to the pussycats, singing in the tree . .
Always will remember, never shall forget . .
to bring your umbrella when it turns out wet.

Can you please share this on your blog to see if anyone knows it?

Thank you so much.
Marianne Wills
