izquierdaThe Cat She Went a-Huntingderecha

The cat she went a-hunting and found the barn a-blazing
and back she's come a-calling, a-calling, a-calling
Wake up farm boys! The barn is burning down!
and the rats came out in their hundreds and the cat she caught a-plenty
She's got the artful dodger, the dodger, the dodger
She spied him in the burning hay the barn is burning down!
Now the cat she's got to hide her face behind the rat she's eating
So as not to show a smirk and maybe get a beating
The farmer slips on his dungarees and he falls down the stairs

The fire brigade is coming and frying chicken singing
And we'll be sitting on boiled eggs, on boiled eggs, on boiled eggs
So open the cage and hose us down we'll make it a dozen a day
The roof is starting to crumble, sparks fly up in the night sky
The dogs are wearing their tails down, their tails down, their tails down
The boys have made a chain in the yard and they're passing the pails along

Now the cat she's got to hide her face behind the rat she's eating
So as not to show a smirk and maybe get a beating
The farmer slips on his dungarees and he falls down the stairs

Wake up farm boys! The barn is burning down!
Wake up farm boys! The barn is burning down!
