I love my little cat I do
Its coat is oh so warm
It comes each day with me to school
And sits upon the form
When teacher says, “Why do you bring
That little pet of yours?”
I tell her that I bring my cat
Along with me because.

Chorus: Daddy wouldn't buy me a bow-wow (bow-wow)
Daddy wouldn't buy me a bow-wow (bow-wow)
I've got a little cat
I am very fond of that
But I'd rather have a bow-wow wow.

We used to have two tiny dogs
Such pretty little dears
But Daddy sold them ‘cos they used
To bite each other's ears
I cried all day, at eight at night
Papa sent me to bed
When ma came home and wiped my eyes
I cried again and said,


I'll be so glad when I get old
To do just as I please
I'll have a dozen bow-wows then
A parrot and some bees
Whenever I see a tiny pet
I'll kiss the little thing
‘Twill remind me of the time gone by
When I would cry and sing.
