SITTING at a window,

In her cloak and hat,
I saw Mother Tabbyskins,

The real old cat!
Chorus. Very old, very old,

Crumplety and lame,
Teaching kittens how to scold,

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 Tabbyskins,

Sticking out her head,
Gave a howl, and then a yowl,

Hobbled off to bed.

Chorus. Very sick, very sick,

Very savage too;
Pray send for a doctor quick-

Any one will do!

Doctor Mouse came creeping,

Creeping to her bed;
Lanced her gums and felt her pulse,

Whispered she was dead.
Chorus. Very sly, very sly,

The real old cat
Open kept her weather eye;

Mouse, beware of that !

Old Mother Tabbyskins,

Saying, “Serves him right,"
Gobbled up the doctor, with

Infinite delight.
Chorus. Very fast, very fast,

Very pleasant, too;
“What a pity it can't last !

Bring another, do."

Doctor Dog comes running,

Just to see her begs ;
Round his neck a comforter,

Trowsers on his legs.
Chorus. Very grand, very grand !

Golden-headed cane Swinging gaily from his hand,

Mischief in his brain.
