The mouse and the bumblebee (2004)

The mouse and the bumblebee

A cat came fiddling out of a barn,
With a pair of bagpipes under her arm.
She could sing nothing but fiddle-de-dee,
The mouse shall marry the bumblebee.
Pipe, cat, dance, mouse!
We’ll have a wedding at our good house.
Fiddle-de-dee, fiddle-de-dee,
The mouse has married the bumblebee.
They went to church and married was she,
The mouse has married the bumblebee.
The cat came fiddling out of the barn,
With a pair of bagpipes under her arm.
She sang nothing but fiddle-de-dee,
Which worried the mouse and the bumblebee.
Puss began purring, the mouse ran away,
And the bee flew off with a loud huzra!
