I Love Little Pussy
: MOTHER GOOSE CONTINUED
: Boys And Girls Bookshelf
"I love little pussy, her coat is so warm,
And if I don't hurt her, she'll do me no harm.
I'll sit by the fire and give her some food,
And pussy will love me because I am good."
I never will dress her again, that is sure.
Her scratches, you see, are not easy to cure.
And I find that it takes much more time than you'd guess,
To sew up the rents in my dolly's best dress.
I'd give a good deal, if it wasn't for that,
To see how she'd look in my dolly's new hat.
But no, I'll not try it, you never can tell;
And politeness is best till one's scratches get well.
