Pussy Cat, Pussy Cat


Pussy cat, pussy cat, where have you been?
I've been to London to look at the Queen.
Pussy cat, pussy cat, what did you do there?
I frightened a little mouse, under the chair.


This rhyme was first published in 1805

It is thought to refer to Elizabeth I who rarely showed herself to her subjects in person preferring to distribute paintings showing her in rather better light than the reality.
