Lyrics

(American folk song)

Saw a crow a-flying low, Kitty alone, kitty alone,
Saw a crow a-flying low, Kitty alone a-lye,
Saw a crow a-flying low and a cat a-spinning tow,
Kitty alone a-lye, Rock-a-ma-rye-ree.

In came a little bat, Kitty alone, kitty alone,
In came a little bat, Kitty alone a-lye,
In came a little bat with some butter and some fat,
Kitty alone a-lye, Rock-a-ma-rye-ree.

Next came in was a honeybee, Kitty alone, kitty alone,
Next came in was a honeybee, Kitty alone a-lye,
Next came in was a honeybee with a fiddle across his knee,
Kitty alone a-lye, Rock-a-ma-rye-ree.

Next came in was little Pete, Kitty alone, kitty alone,
Next came in was little Pete, Kitty alone a-lye,
Next came in was little Pete fixing for to go to sleep,
Kitty alone a-lye, Rock-a-ma-rye-ree.

Bee-o bye-o baby-o, Kitty alone, kitty alone,
Bee-o bye-o baby-o, Kitty alone a-lye,
Bee-o bye-o baby-o, bye-o, bee-o, baby-o,
Kitty alone a-lye, Rock-a-ma-rye-ree.
