KITTY IN THE BASKET (Bob Merrill) Diana Decker - 1954 (Miaow.........Miaow) If there's someone in the city doesn't want a little kitty Tell them put the little kitty in a basket Leave the little basket outside my door And I'll love the little kitty for evermore Wrap the kitty warm, you never know about a storm And I don'y want a little kitty with the sneezes I'll hug her and I'll squeeze her, never never tease her Want a little kitty in a basket No matter 'bout the colour of her nosey Don't care if she's a fella or a girl Don't have to be as pretty as a posey And I promise not to laugh if she only has a half-a-tail If there's someone in the city doesn't want a little kitty Tell them put the little kitty in a basket Leave the little basket outside my door And I'll love the little kitty for evermore Savin' up a dollar and I'm gonna buy a collar If she's lookin' for a home, please won't ya ask it Don't want a little tiskit, or a little tasket Just a little kitty in a basket I'll warm her milk and dress her in pyjamas I'll make a bed for her in Daddy's shoe And if she starts in cryin' for her mama She can bring along her mama and her sisters and her brothers too Don't have to be as pretty as a posey And I promise not to laugh if she only has a half-a-tail If there's someone in the city doesn't want a little kitty Tell them put the little kitty in a basket Leave the little basket outside my door And I'll love the little kitty for evermore Wrap the kitty warm, you never know about a storm And I don'y want a little kitty with the sneezes I'll hug her and I'll squeeze her, never never tease her Want a little kitty in a basket I'll hug her and I'll squeeze her, never never leave her Want a little kitty in a basket (Miaow) [Transcribed by Mel Priddle - October 2002] ******************************** Alternate Version: KITTY IN THE BASKET (Bob Merrill) Gayla Peevey & Jimmy Boyd - 1954 BOTH: If there's someone in the city doesn't want a little kitty Tell 'em put the little kitty in a basket Leave the little basket outside our door And we'll love the little kitty forevermore JIMMY: Wrap the kitty warm, ya never know about a storm And we don't want a little kitty with the sneezes GAYLA: We'll hug her an' we'll squeeze her, never, never tease her BOTH: Want a little kitty in a basket JIMMY: No matter 'bout the color of her nosey Don't care if she's a fella or a girl Gayla: Don't have to be as purty as a posey BOTH: An' we promise not to laugh if she only has a half a ta~ail BOTH: If there's someone in the city doesn't want a little kitty Tell 'em put the little kitty in a basket Leave the little basket outside our door And we'll love the little kitty forevermore GAYLA: Savin' up a dollar and we're gonna buy a collar Saw it in the five-and-tennie when we passed it JIMMY: Don't want a little tiskit or a little tasket BOTH: Want a little kitty in a basket GAYLA: We'll warn her milk and dress her in pajamas We'll make a bed for her in Daddy's shoe JIMMY: And if she starts in crying for her mama BOTH: We can bring along her mama and her sisters and her brothers to~oo BOTH: If there's someone in the city doesn't want a little kitty Tell 'em put the little kitty in a basket Leave the little basket outside our door And we'll love the little kitty forevermore GAYLA: We'll be goin' now but if you hear a cat meowin' An' she's lookin' for a home please won't you ask it JIMMY: We'd really love it so and never let her go BOTH We want a little kitty in a basket BOTH: We want a little kitty in a basket
