Historical Background:
"Pussy-Cat, Pussy-Cat" dates back to the sixteenth century during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I, the fifth and last monarch of Tudor England. It is said that one of the Queen's ladies in waiting owned a cat who wandered about Windsor Castle. One day, the cat brushed by the Queen's foot and frightened her. The Queen continued to allow the cat to roam about as long as she kept the throne room free of mice.

"Pussy-Cat, Pussy-Cat" lyrics:
Pussy-cat, pussy-cat, where have you been?
I've been to London to visit the Queen!
Pussy-cat, pussy-cat, what did you there?
I frightened a little mouse under her chair.

Additional Versions:

Pussy-cat, pussy-cat, where have you been?
I've been to London to visit the Queen!
Pussy-cat, pussy-cat, what did you there?
I frightened a little mouse under her chair.

Version 2

Poussie, poussie, baudrons,
Where hae ye Been?
I've been at London Seein' the king!
Poussie, poussie, baudrons,
What got ye there?
I got a wee mousie,
Rinnin' up a stair!
Poussie, poussie, baudrons,
What did ye do wi't?
I put it in my meal-pock,
To eat it to my bread!

Source: Chambers, The Popular Rhymes of Scotland (1842)

Version 3

Pussycat, pussycat, where have you been?
I've been to see grandmother over the green!
What did she give you?
Milk in a can!
What did you say for it?
Thank you, Grandam!
