WHAT DOES THE PUSSYCAT MEAN WHEN SHE SAYS "MEOW"? (Pease / Granlund / Nelson) Billy Jones & Ernest Hare - 1924 Margaret Young - 1924 BJ: I went to school, that's how I got my knowledge EH: Well, that's nothing great, 'cause I went on to college BJ: I know one thing that you can't answer me EH: Well, what can that one thing be BJ: What does the pussy cat mean when she says, "Meow"? EH: Why, the same as the little dog mean when he says, "Bow-wow" EH: I know that hay means horses BJ: And marriage means divorces BOTH: But what does the pussy cat mean when she says "Meow"? BJ: My sister, May, got married last December EH: And that certain day you always will remember EH: When the preacher said, "Honour and obey" BJ: The crowd began to say BJ: What does the pussy cat mean when she says, "Meow"? EH: The same as the little dog mean when he says, "Bow-wow" EH: I know that clams mean chowder BJ: And a shiny nose means powder BOTH: But what does the pussy cat mean when she says "Meow"? BJ: I know that church means Sunday, and that Friday means a fish EH: I know that wash means Monday, and a platter means a dish BJ: I know a boy means mister, and a girlie means a miss EH: And when her lips touch his lips, then I know it means a kiss BJ: A baby means a rattle, and a barrel means a keg EH: And when a chicken cackles, you can tell she's laid an egg BJ: I know that green means Irish, and that Irish means a cop EH: Limburger means a Dutchman, and spaghetti means a Wop. ("Here kitty, kitty, kitty"......various cat and dog noises) BOTH: So, what does the pussy cat mean when she says.....(Cat noises)? BOTH: The same as the lttle dog means when he says.....(Dog noises) BJ: I know that rain means water, and two-bits means a quarter BOTH: But what does the pussy cat mean when she says.....(Cat noises)? (Transcribed from the Billy Jones/Ernest Hare recording by Mel Priddle - August 2007) ******************* As recorded by MARGARET YOUNG: I want to school, and then I went to college Learned every rule, that's how I got my knowledge But now I'm puzzled, and always up a tree Won't someone please tell me What does the pussy cat mean when she says, "Meow"? What does the little dog mean when he says, "Bow-wow"? I know that hay means horses, and that marriage means divorces But what does the pussy cat mean when she says "Meow"? I know that church means Sunday, and that Friday means a fish I know that wash means Monday, and a platter means a dish I know a boy means mister, and a girlie means a miss When her lip touches his lips, I know it means a kiss A baby means a rattle, a barrel means a keg And when a chicken cackles, it means she's laid an egg I know that green means Irish, and that Irish means a cop Limburger means a Zeppelin, and spaghetti means a Wop What does the pussy cat mean when she says "Meow"? What does the little dog mean when he says "Bow-wow"? I know that Heinz means pickles, and I know a feather tickles But what does the pussy cat mean when she says, "Meow"?
