The Cemetery Pussycat

Pussycat, pussycat, where have you been?
I’ve been to the cemetery to visit my late master...
Pussycat, pussycat, what did you do there?
I tried to awake her by scratching the plaster...

Pussycat, pussycat, did she wake up from her sleep?
I was unable to wake her so I rested near her feet...
Pussycat, pussycat, what then did you do?
I chased away a mouse who was nibbling on her shoe...

Pussycat, pussycat, will you go back there again?
Yes, and if I see that mouse I’ll mix him in my chowmein...
Pussycat, pussycat, why are you so gory?
Because now I am hungry and that’s the end of this story...
