And I'll give her some food;
And pussy will love me
Because I am good.

Я вам нынче не дам пирога.
Мяу-мяу, не дам,

Я вам нынче не дам пирога.
Побежали котятки,
Отыскали перчатки
И, смеясь, прибежали домой:
- Мама, мама, не злись,
Потому что нашлись,
Потому что нашлись
- Отыскали перчатки?
Вот спасибо, котятки!
Я за это вам дам пирога.
Мур-мур-мур, пирога,
Мур-мур-мур, пирога,
Я за это вам дам пирога!
