Great Big Cat

Lyrics

(Traditional chant)

A great, big cat
And a wee, little mouse
Went round and round
In a high, high house

But that wee, little mouse
Got caught at last
‘Cause the great, big cat
Ran around so fast!

Motions

“great, big cat” = speak with low voice, stretch arms out
“wee, little mouse” = speak with high voice, two fingers close together
“round and round” = speak quickly, rolling motion with two fists
“high, high house” = speak with high voice, arms up

“wee, little mouse” = speak with high voice, two fingers close together
“caught at last” = pretend to catch mouse
“great, big cat” = speak with low voice, stretch arms out
(optional – add dramatic pause)
“Ran around so fast!” = speak quickly, rolling motion with two fists
