44 Cats

Down in the cellar of an old mansion
Cats without parents and their companions
Met to improve their sad situation
And find the good cause for celebration
 
All forty four cats
In rows of 6, two at the rear,
Together they lined up,
In rows of 6, two at the rear,
Their whiskers all aligned,
In rows of 6, two at the rear,
Their tails were all entwined,
In rows of 6, two at the rear.
6 times 7 is 42,
Plus two makes forty four!
 
All were in favor of one suggestion,
Asking all children with good intentions,
One meal a day, and on occasion,
To sleep in real beds, what a sensation!
 
All forty four cats
In rows of 6, two at the rear,
Together they lined up,
In rows of 6, two at the rear,
Their whiskers all aligned,
In rows of 6, two at the rear,
Their tails were all entwined,
In rows of 6, two at the rear.
6 times 7 is 42,
Plus two makes forty four!
 
Then as a thank you to all the children
Offering beds and their soft cushions
The grateful cats made a kind offer
To allow day and night fun by tail pulling
 
All forty four cats
In rows of 6, two at the rear,
Together they lined up,
In rows of 6, two at the rear,
Their whiskers all aligned,
In rows of 6, two at the rear,
Their tails were all entwined,
In rows of 6, two at the rear.
6 times 7 is 42,
Plus two makes forty four!
 
When they had finished holding their meeting
And all were sure the outcome was pleasing
Off to the garden they went united
Parentless cats who "meow" were delighted
 
All forty four cats
In rows of 6, two at the rear,
Together they lined up,
In rows of 6, two at the rear,
Their whiskers all aligned,
In rows of 6, two at the rear,
Their tails were all entwined,
In rows of 6, two at the rear.
6 times 7 is 42,
Plus two makes forty four!
 
All forty four cats
In rows of 6, two at the rear,
Together they lined up,
In rows of 6, two at the rear,
Their whiskers all aligned,
In rows of 6, two at the rear,
Their tails were all entwined,
In rows of 6, two at the rear
With two at the rear!!
