The song was included in the Mother Goose collection in England during the 1760s, although the American poet Eliza Lee Cabot Follen was considered to be the author of this rhyme.

It was first printed in 1833 in Britain and ten years later in the U.S.A. under Follen’s name in both cases.


 

“Three Little Kittens” lyrics

1. Three little kittens they lost their mittens,
And they began to cry,
Oh, mother dear, we sadly fear
Our mittens we have lost!
What! lost your mittens, you naughty kittens!
Then you shall have no pie.
Mee-ow, mee-ow, mee-ow.
No, you shall have no pie.

2. The three little kittens they found their mittens,
And they began to cry,
Oh, mother dear, see here, see here,
Our mittens we have found
Put on your mittens, you silly kittens,
And you shall have some pie.
Mee-ow, mee-ow, mee-ow.
Oh, let us have some pie.

3. The three little kittens put on their mittens,
And soon ate up the pie;
Oh, mother dear, we greatly fear
Our mittens we have soiled
What! soiled your mittens, you naughty kittens!
Then they began to sigh,
Mee-ow, mee-ow, mee-ow.
Then they began to sigh.

4. The three little kittens they washed their mittens,
And hung them out to dry;
Oh! mother dear, do you not hear,
Our mittens we have washed
What! washed your mittens, then you’re good kittens,
But I smell a rat close by.
Mee-ow, mee-ow, mee-ow.
We smell a rat close by.
