A cat and a mouse and a bumble-bee
Started a-dancing, one, two, three.
They danced in the daytime,
They danced in the night,
They cared not whether it was dark or light.
What did they dance to? Don’t ask me!
They danced to the hum of the bumble-bee.
They danced to the purr of the big Tom cat,
They danced to the mouse-squeaks high as a bat.
Where did they go to? I don’t know!
Nobody ever saw them go.
But if you ask me,
I’m willing to bet
That if they’re alive they are dancing yet.
