Daddy Wouldn't Buy Me a Bow-Wow

Melody - Joseph Tabrar

Joseph Tabrar

1. I love my little cat, I do,
With soft black silky hair;
It comes with me each day to school
And sits upon the chair;;
When teacher says, "why do you bring
That little pet of your's!"
I tell her that I bring my cat
Along with me because:

|: Daddy wouldn't buy me a bow-wow! bow wow! :|
I've got a little cat,
And I'm very fond of that,
But I'd rather have a bow-wow,
Wow, wow, wow, wow.

2. We used to have two tiny dogs,
Such pretty little dears!
But daddy sold 'em 'cause they used
To bite each other's ears;
I cried all day, at eight each night,
Papa sent me to bed;
When Ma came home and wiped my eyes,
I cried again and said:

3. I'll be so glad when I get old,
To do just as I "likes,"
I'll keep a parrot and at least,
A half a dozen tykes;
And when I've got a tiny pet,
I'll kiss the little thing;
Then put it in its little cot,
And on to it I'll sing:
