I Had a Little Cat

by Charles Causley

I had a little cat called Tim Tom Tay
I took him to town on market day,
I combed his whiskers, I brushed his tail,
I wrote on a label ‘Cat for Sale.
Knows how to deal with rats and mice.
Two pounds fifty. Bargain price.’

But when the people came to buy
I saw such a look in Tim Tom’s eye
That it was clear as clear could be
I couldn’t sell Tim for a fortune’s fee.
I was shamed and sorry, I’ll tell you plain
And I took home Tim Tom Tay again.
