Which gave it an awful shock!
Shock ! shock ! shock! Which gave it an awful shock!
It climbed a tree, to rob a nest
Of young and tender owls ; But the branch broke off, and the kitten fell,
Till puss was felled with an awful club, Most terrible to see!
See! see! see! Most terrible to see!
When puss got up, its eye was shut, Aud swelled, and black and blue;
With six tremendous howls !
Howls ! howls ! howls! With six tremendous howls!
Soon after that it met a cat: " Now, give to me your purse;
Or I'll shoot you through, and stab you too, And kill you, which is worse!
Worse ! worse ! worse ! And kill you, which is worse!"
One day it met a robber dog,
And they sat down to drink ; The dog did joke, and laugh, and sing,
Which made the kitten wink! Wink ! wink! wink !
Which made the kitten wink!
At last they quarreled ; then they fought Beneath the greenwood tree,
Moreover, all its bones were sore; So it began to mew!
Mew ! mew ! mew ! So it began to mew!
Then up it rose, and scratched its nose,
And went home very sad: " Oh, mother dear! behold me here,
I'll never more be bad! Bad! bad! bad!
I'll never more be bad!"
Oxce there was a little kitty, White as the snow;
In the barn she used to frolic, Long time ago.
