    Pussy Can Sit by the Fire and Sing

    Pussy can sit by the fire and sing,
    Pussy can climb a tree
    Or play with a silly old cork and string
    To 'muse herself, not me.
    But I like Binkie my dog, because
    He knows how to behave;
    So, Binkie's the same as the First Friend was,
    And I am the Man in the Cave!

    Pussy will play Man Friday till
    It's time to wet her paw
    and make her walk on the window-sill
    (For the footprint Crusoe saw);
    Then she fluffles her tail and mews,
    And scratches and won't attend
    But Binkie will play whatever I choose,
    And he is my true First Friend!

    Pussy will rub my knees with her head
    Pretending she loves me hard;
    But the very minute I go to my bed
    Pussy runs out in the yard,
    And there she stays till the morning-light;
    So I know it is only pretend
    And he is my Firstest Friend.
