Lyrics

(Folk song)

1. Pussy cat high, Pussy cat low,
Pussy cat was a fine teazer of tow.*

2. Pussy cat she came into the barn,
With her bagpipes under her arm.

3. And then she told a tale to me,
How Mousey had married a humble bee.

4. Then was I ever so glad,
That Mousey had married so clever a lad.

*I couldn’t find the meaning of “teaser of tow,” but this article mentions how a “teaser” can be a decoy which is towed on a fishing line. So, maybe it has to do with the cat trying to catch prey.
