Fiddle-I-Fee (Bought Me A Cat)

This is a surprisingly dissonant children's song, especially if you check out this version, arranged by the prominent 20th century composer Aaron Copland.



I bought me a cat, the cat pleased me,
I fed my cat under yonder tree.
My cat goes fiddle-i-fee.

I bought me a hen, the hen pleased me,
I fed my hen under yonder tree.
My hen goes chimmy-chuck, chimmy-chuck,
My cat goes fiddle-i-fee.

I bought me a duck, the duck pleased me,
I fed my duck under yonder tree.
Duck goes quak, quak,
Hen goes chimmy-chuck, chimmy-chuck,
Cat goes fiddle-i-fee.

I bought me a goose... My goose goes hissy, hissy...
I bought me a sheep... My sheep goes baa, baa...
I bought me a pig... My pig goes oink, oink,
