Lyrics

White kitty and black kitty go
over there between my old toes.
My old toes they dangle uselessly
for they have seen too much woe.

Oh! I like my toes. I like them nice.
Stuffed in socks and shoes all night.
But you see my kitties grabbed them.
Playing with them to delight.

White kitty and black kitty both
like to dance and play evrywhere.
But, I think they might like to do
something about the hour.

Oh, It’s nearly four o’clock at night.
Cat’s will be as cats all night.
Screaming, jumping, wooing, wiggling.
Climbing up things all the night.

Kitty cats they like to do things.
Lively things and sleepier things.
These cats they just want to play with me.
I am trying to sleep.

Oh! I like the kitties, yes, I do.
White and black, they are so cool.
But, you see, these cats love me, so
on my head they want to sleep.

White kitty and black kitty both
play with kids and play with their toes.
I think they might do things
with a cat, a cam’ra and a pose.

Oh, black kitty’s a Ninja right.
Ninja quiet and out of sight.
White kitty’s just a Snowball
and tumbling down to our delight.
