Pussy cat, pussy cat, where have you been ?
Taffy was a Welchman, Taffy was a thief,
Boys and girls, come out to play,
Leave your supper, and leave your sleep,
And meet your playfellows in the street; Come with a whoop, and come with a call, And come with a good will, or not at all.
Up the ladder and down the wall,
A halfpenny roll will serve us all.
Ride a cock horse to Banbury-cross
To see what Tommy can buy;
And a two penny apple pie.
Ride a cock horse to Shrewsbury-cross,
Jemmy Jed went into a shed,
How many miles to Babylon ?
Oh I am so happy,
Good morning, Papa !
For good morning, mamma!
Trip upon trenchers,
And dance upon dishes,
She bid me tread lightly,
And come again quickly, For fear the young men would play me some jest.
Yet didn't you see, yet didn't you see,
What naughty tricks they put upon me? They broke my pitcher, and spilt my water, And huff?d my mother, and chid her daughter,
And kissed my sister instead of me.
