Página 6 - Very nice, very nice Little doctor he, But for Doctor Dog's advice You must pay the fee. Doctor Dog comes nearer, Says she must be bled; I heard Mother Tabbyskins Screaming in her bed. Very near, very near, Scuffling out and in; Doctor Dog looks full and queer — Where is Tabbyskin? I will tell the Moral Without any fuss : Those who lead the young astray Always suffer thus.

Página 4 - Is it not a shame ? Kittens in the garden Looking in her face, Learning how to spit and swear, Oh, what a disgrace ! Chorus. Very wrong, very wrong, Very wrong and bad ; Such a subject for our song Makes us all too sad. Old Mother...
