COMIC SONGS

THE OLD WOMAN AND HER CATS.

A VERY old woman once liv'd by herself,

In a garret so monstrously high,
Her cupboard was lined, well stored was each shelf,
And in a sly pocket was plenty of pelf,

To get a drop of liquor when dry.
But the rats and the mice through the holes,
Came into the cupboard in shoals,
So free exercising their gums,
On cheese-parings, candle-ends, and crumbs;
And though it a strange thing may seem,
They wash'd their tails in the cream,
Which was shocking bad manners you'll say,

Alas, and alack-a-day!
A curious moral I make,
Listen great and small,
Better have some crumbs for the mice to take,
Than to have no crumbs at all.
