Kitten Songs


Three Little Kittens

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, mee-ow,
Then you shall have no pie.
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.
What, found your mittens,
Then you’re good kittens,
And you shall have some pie.
Purr-r, purr-r, purr-r, purr-r,
Then you shall have some pie.
The three little kittens,
Put on their mittens,
And soon ate up the pie.
Oh, mother, dear,
We sadly fear,
Our mittens we have soiled.
What! Soiled your mittens,
You naughty kittens,
And they began to sigh.
Mee-ow, mee-ow, mee-ow, mee-ow,
And they began to sigh.
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, mee-ow,
We smell a rat close by.


I am 5 years old and I was looking at this with my Mom who is a preschool teacher. When I saw that there were no songs under the Kittens theme, I began singing Meow, Meow, Meow to one of my favorite classical tunes. You could sing any tune with kids such as “Row, Row, Row Your Boat” just replacing the usual words with, “Meow, Meow, Meow Meow”, etc. It would be a lot of fun!

To the tune of “……that is the way to spell Chicken”

K … that’s the way it begins
I… isthe next letter in
T.. that is the third
T.. you’ve already heard
E..that old letter’s my friend
N… now we’re here at the end

K…I.. T.. T.. E..and N, that is the way you spell “kitten”


Kitten Song

Five little kittens napping by the door
one woke up and then there were four;

Four little kittens napping next to me
one woke up and then there were three;

Three little kittens napping next to you
one woke up and then there were two;

Two little kittens napping in the sun
one woke up and then there was one;

One little kitten napping on a shelf
he(she) woke up and was all by himself!!!!!
