The city mouse lives in a house;

Language: English

 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.
