"Three Blind Mice." Round (or Canon) for Three Voices.

[Music:

Moderately Quick.

Three blind mice, Three blind mice, Three blind mice,

See how they run! See how they run! See how they run!

They all ran after the farmer's wife, who cut off their tails with a carving knife, Did you ever see such a sight in your life

As three blind mice?

Twice through and finish at pause. ]

Three Small Mice Three Small Mice Three Small Mice

Pined for some fun Pined for some fun Pined for some fun

They made up their minds to set out to roam; Said they, "'Tis dull to remain at home," And all the luggage they took was a comb, These three Small Mice

Three Bold Mice Three Bold Mice

Came to an Inn Came to an Inn Came to an Inn

"Good evening, Host, can you give us a bed?" But the Host he grinned and he shook his head;

So they all slept out in a field instead, These three Bold Mice.

Three Cold Mice Three Cold Mice

Woke up next morn Woke up next morn Woke up next morn

They each had a cold and a swollen face, Through sleeping all night in an open space; So they rose quite early and left the place, These three Cold Mice.

Three Hungry Mice Three Hungry Mice

Searched for some food Searched for some food Searched for some food

But all they found was a walnut shell That lay by the side of a dried up well; Who had eaten the nut they could not tell, These three Hungry Mice.

Three Starved Mice Three Starved Mice

Three Poor Mice Three Poor Mice

Soon changed their tone Soon changed their tone Soon changed their tone

The Farmer's Wife said, "What are you at, And why were you capering round like that? Just wait a minute: I'll fetch the Cat" Oh dear! Poor Mice.

[Illustration]

[Illustration]

Three Scared Mice Three Scared Mice

Ran for their lives Ran for their lives Ran for their lives

They jumped out on to the window ledge; The mention of "Cat" set their teeth on edge; So they hid themselves in the bramble hedge, These three Scared Mice.

[Illustration]

Three Sad Mice Three Sad Mice

What could they do? What could they do? What could they do?
