Thread Name: Origins: I Bought Me a Cat / Fiddle-i-Fee
Subject: RE: Lyrics to I Bought Me A Cat
Had me a cat, the cat please me. Fed my cat under yonder tree. Cat went fiddle-i-fee, fiddle-i-fee.

Had me a hen, the hen pleased me. Fed my hen under yonder tree. Hen went chipsey, chopsy, cat went fiddle-i-fee, fiddle-i-fee.

Had me a sheep (baa-baa), duck, horse, cow, baby (wah-ah, wah-ah), wife (honey, honey) and the cat went fiddle-i-fee.

Heard it on PBS 20 years ago and have enjoyed singing it every since.
