Ee, What an armful I have got,
Too big to nurse they're getting:
They're both good doggies,
but they want Oh, such a lot of petting
They're very sweet and very young,
And very fat and lazy;
Joe christened this one Buttercup.
And that one's name is Daisy.
My kitties are so bad! then cried
The little maid behind, O!
You couldn't guess how all the day
They occupy my mind O!
It's very sad, O little folks,
And much to be regretted,
But boys and girls as well, I've heard.
Are fond of being petted.
