‘Rat-tat-tat, rat-tat-tat,’
Is that a rat with that rat-tat-tat?



I asked the cat
But he hadn’t heard the
Rat-tat-tat, rat-tat-rat.


So he went and fetched his hat
To hunt for the
A feather hat for hunting rat
As I was told by the cat


‘Rat-tat-tat, Rat-tat-tat’

There it is, can you hear: rat-tat-tat, rat-tat-rat?

And the cat in his jaunty feathered hunting hat
Went to hunt for the rat-tat-rat,
The rat we heard with the rat-tat-tat.

But the cat in his hunting hat,
His jaunty, feathered hunting hat,
Could not find the rat-tat-rat.

And so, that is the end of that.
