C was Papa's gray Cat,                                                         D was Papa's white Duck,
Who caught a squeaky Mouse; She pulled him by     Who had a curly tail; One day it ate a great fat
his twirly tail                                                                                       frog,
All about the house.                                                                 Besides a leetle snail.
E was a little Egg,
Upon the breakfast table; Papa came in and ate it
As fast as he was able.
F was a little Fish.
Cook in the river took it Papa said, "Cook!
Cook! bring a dish!
And, Cook! be quick and cook it!"
