"Hey! diddle, diddle..."
by Mother Goose

Hey! diddle, diddle,
The cat and the fiddle,
The cow jumped over the moon;
The little dog laughed
To see such sport,
And the dish ran away with the spoon.

[The dish ran away with the spoon]

Alternate version:

   Hey, diddle, diddle,
   The cat and the fiddle,
The cow jumped over the moon;
   The little dog laughed
   To see the sport,
While the dish ran away with the spoon.
