A cat and mouse story.
A tiny little mouse had a tiny little house, right in the middle of a mansion.
The tiny little mouse loved his little house, for it was all the fashion.
He ate a little bit, so you'd hardly notice it, of the crumbs left all around;
Nervously he ate, when it was getting late, listening for every little sound.
One day, a prowling pussy cat came sniffing at his door;
Through the tiny little hole, came a big furry paw.
A-stretching and a-clawing, his paw was searching round;
The tiny little mouse didn't make a sound.
Soon, the prowling pussy cat seemed to be asleep,
Outside the tiny hole, a vigil for to keep.
The tiny little mouse really didn't know,
If the cat was only waiting for the little mouse to show.
Time was pressing onward and a hungry little mouse,
Bravely tip-toed through the door of his tiny little house.
Running past the pussy cat, his heart was beating fast;
The pussy cat got up and stretched, waking up at last.
The cat was crouching ready, on the little mouse to spring,
When a flea bit down so hard that he couldn't do a thing.
The tiny little mouse froze along his way,
He didn't seem to realise this was his lucky day.
A-kicking and a-scratching and a-rolling on the floor,
That poor old pussy cat couldn't take anymore.
Biting here and biting there, the flea was everywhere;
The tiny little mouse could only stand and stare.
Mewing and meowing, the cat then ran away,
From the tiny little hole and his tiny little prey.
The little mouse began to move as fast as he could go,
He gathered lots of food, running to and fro.
Inside his tiny house, grew a store of food so tall,
He'd have his fill for days, for he was only small.
