Some people have dogs for pets
And some people have cats but

There was a tailor, had a mouse
Hi diddle um come feed a
They lived together in one house
Hi diddle um come feed a

Hi diddle um, come tintrum tantrum
Through the town of Ramsey
Hi diddle um, come over the lea
Hi diddle um come feed a

The tailor had a tall silk hat
Hi diddle um come feed a
The mouse he ate it, fancy that
Hi diddle um come feed a

Hi diddle um, come tintrum tantrum
Through the town of Ramsey
Hi diddle um, come over the lea
Hi diddle um come feed a

The tailor, he chased him over the lea
Hi diddle um come feed a
The last of that mouse he never did see
Hi diddle um come feed a

Hi diddle um, come tintrum tantrum
Through the town of Ramsey
Hi diddle um, come over the lea
Hi diddle um come feed a
