We’ve got a mouse, a mouse called Claude
He lives in a hole in the skirting board.
Every night he nibbles our cheese
And he takes some back to his wife Lousie.

“Oh!” Screamed mother as she jumped in the air
But the mouse nibbled on without a care.
She bought a cat, and what is more,
The mouse moved into the house next door.

We’ve got a cat, a cat called Paul
He lives in a box in the entrance hall.
Every night he nibbles our fish
And he takes some back to his wife on a dish.

“Oh!” Screamed mother as she jumped in the air
But the cat nibbled on without a care.
She bought a dog, and what is more,
The cat moved into the house next door.

We’ve got a dog, a dog called Fred
He lives in a box in the garden shed.
Every night he nibbles our meat
Along with his wife called Marguerite.

“Oh!” Screamed mother as she jumped in the air
But the dog nibbled on without a care
She bought a pig, a cow and a horse,
And we now live next door of course.
