THREEf. TITLE KITTENS.


THREE Little Kittens
Lost their mittens,
And they began to cry,
"Oh, mammy dear,
We sadly fear
Our mittens we have lost "
What t lost your mittens,
You naughty kittens,
Then you shall have no pie!"
AMiew, miew, miew, miew, -
Miew, miew, miew, iniew.

The three little kittens
Then sought their mittens,
Upon the table high;
Indoors and out,
They scampered about,
For they were very spry;
Now high, now low,
The three in a row,
And oh I how they made things fly!
Miew, miew, miew, miew,
Miew, miew, miew, .miew.

EATING THE PIE.







THE STORY OF THREE LITTLE KITTENS.


The three little kittens found their mittens,
And they began to cry,
"Oh! mammy dear, see here, see here,
Our mittens we have found!"
" What I found your mittens, you darling kittens,
Then you shall have some pie."
Purr, purr, purr, purr,
Purr, purr, purr, purr.

The three little kittens put on their mittens,
.And soon ate up the pie.
Oh I mammy dear, we sadly fear
Our mittens we have soiled."
( What! soiled your mittens, you naughty kittens I"
:: Then they began to sigh.
Miew, miew, miew, miew,
Miew, miew, miew, miew.

The three little kittens washed their mittens,
And hung them up to dry.
Oh, mammy dear, look here, look here,
Our mittens we have washed I"
What! washed your mittens, you good little kittens!
But I smell a rat close by!
Hush! hush!" Miew, miew,
Miew, miew, miew, miew.

THE STORY OF THREE LITTLE KITTENS.


These kittens so gay were invited one day
To feast by a running stream,
Where they had as much meat as they wanted to eat,
And plenty of nice ice-cream;
And each went to sleep curled up in a heap,
And had a most lovely dream.
Purr, purr, purr, purr,
Purr, purr, purr, purr.

One night in the Fall they went to a ball,
And danced to a lively tune,
With a leap and a bound and a merry-go-round,
And the sound of a big bassoon;
And with holes in their mittens these careless kittens
Came home by the light of the moon.
Miew, miew, miew, miew,
Miew, miew, miew, miew.

These kittens 'twas said were soon to be wed,
The cards had been out some days,
And cat-birds, no doubt, spread the news about,
As they flew o'er the great high-ways,
And cats, one and all, the great and the small,
Were loud in the kittens' praise.
Miew, miew, miew, miew,
Miew, miew, miew, miew.

THE STORY OF THREE LITTLE KITTENS.


At last came the day, and in splendid array,
The guests soon began to arrive,
The aunts and the cousins by sixes and dozens,
All buzzing like bees in a hive;
And among them Sir Rouser, a famous old mouser,
And the handsomest Maltese alive.
Purr, purr, purr, pnrr,
Purr, purr, purr, purr.

After the marriage each pair took a carriage,
And oh, they rode off in fine style;
The brides beaming brightly and bowing politely
To friends every once in a while,
Who kept up a squalling and great caterwauling;
That might have been heard for a mile.
Miew, miew, miew, miew,
Miew, miew, miew, miew.

The three pretty brides, and their husbands besides,
Took rooms in a very nice flat;
Not a rat nor a mouse was e'er seen in the house,
Nor any one heard to cry Scat!
So they lived and looked pleased, they were petted
not teased-
Now what do you think of that ?
Purr, purr, purr, purr,
Purr, purr, purr, purr.
