Joe - well guessed:
ABC, d' Katz schlaft im Schnee. D'Schnee geht aweck, d' Katz schlaft im Dreck!
Considering the publication of the text in Schwoba-Forom (High German: Suebian Forum) I think the translation of schlaft should be slids, since sleeps is schlooft in Alemannic. It would better suit a movement in the snow with white boots on.
