White Kitty

Cat. #0860 (MFH #719) - As sung by Ollie Gilbert, Mountain View, Arkansas on August 27, 1969

Once't there was a little kitty, white as snow
In th barn he used to ramble a long time ago
In th barn a little mousy he ran to an' fro
For he spied that little kitty along time ago

Four soft paws, that little kitty, paws soft as snow
An' they caught that little mousy, a long time ago
Nine, fer a piece, that little kitty, all in a row
An' bit that little mousy, a long time ago

When th teeth bit little mousy, mousy cried, Oh
But she slipped away from kitty, a long time ago
