Three little kittens song lyrics

Three little kittens, they lost their mittens,
And they began to cry,
"Oh, mother dear, we sadly fear,
That we have lost our mittens."

"What! Lost your mittens, you naughty kittens!
Then you shall have no pie."
"Mee-ow, mee-ow, mee-ow."
"No, you shall have no pie."

Three little kittens, they found their mittens,
And they began to cry,
"Oh, mother dear, see here, see here,
For we have found our mittens."

"Put on your mittens, you silly kittens,
And you shall have some pie."
"Mee-ow, mee-ow, mee-ow."
"Let us have some pie."

Three little kittens put on their mittens,
And soon ate up the pie;
"Oh, mother dear, we greatly fear
That we have soiled our mittens."

"What! Soiled your mittens, you naughty kittens!"
And they began to sigh,
"Mee-ow, mee-ow, mee-ow."
And they began to sigh.

Three little kittens, they washed their mittens,
And hung them out to dry;
"Oh, mother dear, look here, look here,
Our mittens we have washed."

"Washed your mittens, oh, you're such good kittens."
But I smell a rat close by,
"Mee-ow, mee-ow, mee-ow."
"We smell a rat close by."
