TABBY GREY.

I am a little kitty, my name is Tabby Grey;

My home is in the country, just twenty miles away.

My eyes are bright as hazel, my fur as soft as silk;

I'm fed each night and morning, with a saucer full of milk.


The milk comes fresh and foaming, right from the good old cow,

And after I have lapped it, I frolic, you know how;

I'm petted by the children, the mistress of the house,

And sometimes, when I'm nimble, I catch a little mouse.


And sometimes, when I'm naughty, I climb upon the stand,

And eat the cake, or chicken, or anything at hand;

Ah! then they take my saucer, no matter how I mew,

And that's the way I'm wunished, for the naughty things I do.
