Long Time Ago


(American folk song)

Once there was a little kitty,
White as the snow.
She went out to hunt a mouse,
Long time ago.

Two black eyes had little kitty,
Black as a crow,
And she spied a little mousse,
Long time ago.

Four soft paws had little kitty,
Soft as the snow,
And they caught the little mouse,
Long time ago.

Nine pearl teeth had little kitty,
All in a row,
And they bit the little mouse,
Long time ago.

When the kitty bit the mouse,
Mouse cried out, “Oh!”
But she got away from kitty,
Long time ago.
