"The Old Gray Cat"

       
  1. The old gray cat is sleeping, sleeping, sleeping.
The old gray cat is sleeping in the house.
 
       
 
2.
The little mice are creeping, creeping, creeping.
The little mice are creeping through the house.
 
       
 
3.
The little mice are nibbling, nibbling, nibbling.
The little mice are nibbling in the house.
 
       
 
4.

The little mice are sleeping, sleeping, sleeping.
The little mice are sleeping in the house.

 
       
  5. The old gray cat comes creeping, creeping, creeping.
The old gray cat comes creeping through the house.
 
       
  6.

The little mice all scamper, scamper, scamper.
The little mice all scamper thorough the house.
