lyrics

Hey diddle diddle the cat and the fiddle,
But the fiddle's not being played,
It's dusty in the corner and the cow's not around
'Cos he needed a holiday,

So I'll stay,
Here today,

Hey diddle diddle I'll take that fiddle,
And I'll try to make it play,
Its strings are broken & I'm not joking,
It's still got something to say,

So I'll stay,
Here today,

Hey diddle diddle the moon is a riddle,
And it floats with so much grace,
Hey diddle diddle it's nice in the middle,
But it's fine any other place,

But I'll stay,
Here today,

The moon is brightened by the sun,
The moon is lightened by the sun

Hey diddle diddle the cat and the fiddle,
But the fiddle's not being played,
It's dusty in the corner and the cow's not around
'Cos he needed a holiday,

So I'll stay,
Here today,
