The city mouse lives in a house;
The city mouse lives in a house; --
The garden mouse lives in a bower,
He's friendly with the frogs and toads,
And sees the pretty plants in flower.
The city mouse eats bread and cheese; --
The garden mouse eats what he can;
We will not grudge him seeds and stalks,
Poor little timid furry man.
