Kitty in a Basket

Written b:y Bob Merrill, Copyright: Unknown



If there's someone in the city doesn't want a little kitty
Tell them put the little kitty in a basket
Leave the little basket outside my door
And I'll love the little kitty for evermore

Wrap the kitty warm, you never know about a storm
And I don't want a little kitty with the sneezes
I'll hug her and I'll squeeze her, never never tease her
Want a little kitty in a basket

No matter 'bout the colour of her nosey
Don't care if she's a fella or a girl
Don't have to be as pretty as a posey
And I promise not to laugh if she only has a half-a-tail

If there's someone in the city doesn't want a little kitty
Tell them put the little kitty in a basket
Leave the little basket outside my door
And I'll love the little kitty for evermore

Savin' up a dollar and I'm gonna buy a collar
If she's lookin' for a home, please won't ya ask it
Don't want a little tiskit, or a little tasket
Just a little kitty in a basket

I'll warm her milk and dress her in pyjamas
I'll make a bed for her in Daddy's shoe
And if she starts in cryin' for her mama
She can bring along her mama and her sisters and her brothers too

Don't have to be as pretty as a posey
And I promise not to laugh if she only has a half-a-tail

If there's someone in the city doesn't want a little kitty
Tell them put the little kitty in a basket
Leave the little basket outside my door
And I'll love the little kitty for evermore

Wrap the kitty warm, you never know about a storm
And I don't want a little kitty with the sneezes
I'll hug her and I'll squeeze her, never never tease her
Want a little kitty in a basket

I'll hug her and I'll squeeze her, never never leave her
Want a little kitty in a basket

(Miaow)
