The Little Mouse

The Little Mouse Lyrics

I have seen you, little mouse, 

Running all about the house, 

Through the hole your little eye 

In the wainscot peeping sly, 

Hoping soon some crumbs to steal, 

To make quite a hearty meal. 

Look before you venture out, 

See if pussy is about. 

If she's gone, you'll quickly run 

To the larder for some fun; 

Round about the dishes creep, 

Taking into each a peep, 

To choose the daintiest that's there, 

Spoiling things you do not care.
