The Tale of A Tail - Harper's

There was a rat lived in a mill—
Heigh oh! says Tidley Pill;
If she's not dead, she lives there still—
Heigh oh! says Tidley Pill.

This rat she had a great long tail—
Heigh oh! says Tidley Pill;
One day she caught it on a nail—
Heigh oh! says Tidley Pill.

She pulled so hard she pulled it out—
Heigh oh! says Tidley Pill;
And then she turned herself about—
Heigh oh! says Tidley Pill.

At home I've got a little babee—
Heigh oh! says Tidley Pill;
I wonder if she will know me—
Heigh oh! says Tidley Pill.

Oh, mother! mother! where's your tail?—
Heigh oh! says Tidley Pill.
Yonder it hangs upon a nail—
Heigh oh! says Tidley Pill.
