(Tune of "Bingo")

I know a cat with perky ears,
And kitty is her name-o.
K-I-T-T-Y, K-I-T-T-Y, K-I-T-T-Y,
And kitty is her name-o.

A kitten is hiding under a chair.
(hide thumb under other hand)
I looked and looked for her everywhere.
(peer around looking)
Under the table and under the bed.
(pretend to look)
I looked around the corner, and when I said,
"Come here, kitty kitty, there's milk for you,"
(cup hands for a dish and extend)
Kitty came running and calling, "Meow, meow."
(run fingers up arm)
