POOR OLD PUSSY Harry Hemsley Harry Hemsley Jimmy, he went fishing, (He should have been at school) He sat and fished for tiddlers Beside a shallow pool. He caught a fish (a whopper) But Jimmy he was rash, In trying to land it, in he fell, His father heard a splash. Poor old Jimmy, poor old Jimmy, He's now in bed - Dad's locked his bedroom door, Poor old Jimmy, poor old Jimmy, Poor Jimmy won't go fishing any more. The cat went in the pantry, The cat was very thin, The cat went in the pantry, And came out with a grin. The cat went in the pantry, It made the old cook jump, Though it was thin when it went in, It came out very plump. Poor old pussy, poor old pussy, The cook she gave the pussy cat what for Poor old pussy, poor old pussy, She won't go in the pantry any more. Tom went in the orchard, And climbed the nearest tree, He helped himself to apples, And ate them eagerly. Tom went in the orchard, It was a lovely treat, To pick so much forbidden fruit, And eat, and eat, and eat. Poor old Tommy, poor old Tommy, The apples gave poor Tommy such a pain, Poor old Tommy, poor old Tommy, Poor Tommy won't go stealing fruit again. (Contributed by James Went - February 2007)
