Rats!; They Fought The Dogs...

Rats!; They fought the dogs and killed the cats; And bit the babies in the cradles; And ate the cheeses out of the vats; And licked the soup from the cooks' own ladles; Split open the kegs of salted sprats; Made nests inside men's Sunday hats; And even spoiled the women's chats; By drowning their speaking; With shrieking and squeaking; In fifty different sharps and flats;
