Katalina had etched in memory
The Mother Goose Book of Rhymes
Her diction was most exemplary
When she spoke those rhyming lines

She knew the lines so well by now
She changed them from time to time
She got rid of the jumping cow
And added a mountain to climb

The mouse who married the bumble bee
Left for St. Ives with seven cats
Jack Sprat had a tape worm you see
But his wife was still plenty fat

Kat has put to bagpipes and drums
Jack be nimble, Jack be quick
Jack Horner still stuck in his thumb
But she got rid of the candlestick
