SONGS FOR THE NURSERY.
MOTHEK TABBYSKINS.
Sitting at her window, in her cloak and hat, I saw Mother Tabbyskins, the real old cat; Very old, very old, crumplety and lame, Teaching kittens how to scold�is it not a shame ?
Kittens in the garden, looking in her face, Learning how to spit and scold�oh, what a dis�grace ! Very wrong, very wrong�very wrong and bad ; Such a subject for our song makes us all too sad.
Old Mother Tabbyskins, sticking out her head, Gave a howl and then a yowl, hobbled off to bed. Very sick, very sick! very savage, too! Pray send for a doctor�quick! any one will do.
Doctor Mouse came creeping, creeping to her bed, Lanced her gums, and felt her pulse�whispered
she was dead. Very sly, very sly, the real old cat Open kept her weather eye�Mouse, beware of that!
Old Mother Tabbyskins, saying, " Serves him
right," Gobbled up the doctor with infinite delight. " Very fast, very fast! very pleasant, too ! What a pity it can't last�bring another, do!"
Doctor Dog comes running�just to see her, begs; Round his neck a comforter, trousers on his legs. Very grand ! very grand ! golden-headed cane Swinging gayly from his hand, mischief in his brain.
