Three little mice, Named In, Pin, Tin
One fat, one short, The other one thin.
They woke up one night, As lazy as ever
The moon was already up, And they began to shiver.
They brushed their teeth, And said, ‘lets eat’
There’s milk on the shelf, Eggs, cheese and meat!
But what do we wear? We have no sweater!
So quickly they went, To the old shopkeeper.
But the shopkeeper said, ‘I have no wool’
For the sheep are on a picnic, Near the big blue pool!
So off they went, To look for the sheep
They found them together, But were all fast asleep!
Some of them had white wool, And some of them had brown
But In wanted a sweater, Like that of the circus clown!
Pin loved mittens, Of stripes red and gold,
And Tin wanted socks, ‘Coz his feet were very cold!
But how do we wake them? Said In with a grin –
We’ll blow a big balloon, And burst it with a pin!
They ran to a toy-shop, Counting all their money
And bought a nice balloon, Orange, green – and shiny!
The three blew and blew, Till it swelled like the moon
But suddenly Pin said, Look – its already noon!
Now we don’t need sweaters, Or mittens or socks
Its getting so warm, Forget the sleeping flocks.
Tin looked at the balloon, And had a plan bright
Each held on to the thread, One, two, three and tight!
In said some magic words, And into the sky they flew
Soaring over birds and flowers, And everyone else they knew.
They sang funny songs, Swaying in the breeze
Everything was just fine, Till Tin gave a loud sneeze!
POP! went the balloon, For the sneeze made such a din!
And they fell straight into bed, The lazy In, Pin, Tin.
