Hi Diddle Diddle    (1999)

Hi diddle diddle it's a cat and a fiddle
And a cow jumped over the moon
Little boy blue and the woman in the shoe
And the cup run away with the spoon
Hi diddle diddle it's a cat and a fiddle
And they played it all night long
They all drank beer and everybody cheered
When they heard that storybook song

Ole King Cole was a merry old soul
And a merry old soul was he
He called for a pipe and he called for a bowl
And he called for a storybook tea
Porridge cold, porridge hot
He chased the mouse right up the clock
It was a rowdy crowd and it got real loud
And they really made the storybook rock

Hi diddle diddle it's a cat and a fiddle
And a cow jumped over the moon
Little boy blue and the woman in the shoe
And the cup run away with the spoon
Hi diddle diddle it's a cat and a fiddle
And they played it all night long
They all drank beer and everybody cheered
When they heard that storybook song

Humpty dumpty came to the ball
But he drank too much
And he had a great fall
All for the girl who had a little curl
She made a mess of Humpty's world
Old Jack Sprat could eat no fat
His wife could eat no lean
So between the two of them
They licked that platter clean

Hi diddle diddle it's a cat and a fiddle
And a cow jumped over the moon
Little boy blue and the woman in the shoe
And the cup run away with the spoon
Hi diddle diddle it's a cat and a fiddle
And they played it all night long
They all drank beer and everybody cheered
When they heard that storybook song

Jack and Jill ran up the hill
To fetch a pail of water
Jack fell down and he broke his crown
And Jill was soon to follow
But Jack was nimble and Jack was quick
And he played the drums with a candlestick
Everybody came from miles around
When they dig that storybook sound

Hi diddle diddle it's a cat and a fiddle
And a cow jumped over the moon
Little boy blue and the woman in the shoe
And the cup run away with the spoon
Hi diddle diddle it's a cat and a fiddle
And they played it all night long
They all drank beer and everybody cheered
When they heard that storybook song
