3 blind cats. 3 blind cats. See how they chase. See how they chase.
They each ran after 3 mice in a race.
The 9 mice turned and just laughed in the face of 3 blind cats.

3 blind cats. See how they chase. See how they chase.
They each ran after 4 mice in a race.
The 12 mice turned and just laughed in the face of 3 blind cats. 3 blind cats.

Bridge (To the tune of Oh Susanna)

Now these blind cats had wizened up, and came to realize.
That if they were to eat today, a plan they should devise.
They knew that there were 3 of them. And if they’d each catch 5.
Then 15 mice would be enough to keep them all alive.

Chorus: These 3 cats dreamed of catching 6 mice each
And taking 18 mice for lunch, they’d head down towards the beach.

Verse 1: So each cat bought a trap and cheese, the mice they would surprise.
And while they waited for their catch, they snacked on some french fries.

Chorus: 3 cats each caught 7 mice to keep.
But 21 mice were too much for 3 fat cats too eat.

Verse 2: So after each cat lost some weight, again they set their trap.
And off they went to get away to take a short catnap.

Chorus: 3 cats each caught 8 mice they could eat.
But 24 mice got away, while they were asleep.

Verse 3: Now once again they set their trap, and then went out to play.
For Old McDonald had a farm, and on it was some hay.

Chorus: 3 cats each caught 9 mice at noonday
But 27 sneaky mice got out and ran away.

Verse 4: The 3 cats each gave 10 dollars because they had a hunch
That spending 30 dollars would be easier for lunch.

Chorus: So all 3 cats went merrily on their way.
And all the mice they caught that day yelled yip yippee, aye ay.
