Hey Diddle Diddle
Hey diddle diddle,
The cat and the fiddle,
The cow jumped over the moon,
The little dog laughed to see such sport,
And the dish ran away with the spoon.
Hey Diddle Diddle Alternative Lyrics
A lesser known version from Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
And the cat on his fiddle
Played hey diddle diddle
A tune that could wake the dead
A little familiar version
With a ping and a pong
The fiddle strings broke
The cow jumped over the moon
the little dog laughed to see such fun
And the Saturday dish went off at a run with the silver Sunday spoon.
Hey diddle diddle
The cat and the guitar
The cow jumpde over the star
The little dog barfed
To see such strife
And the dish ran away with the knife
