The words quoted by De Anna on 4 Feb 09 are the precise words I learned in 1959-60. They were in an elementary song book used in our first grade music class. They are burned into my brain 50+ years later because the lady who taught the music class became angry that some students were singing "puts her snowy leggings on" rather than "gets". She required each of us to come to the front of the room and sing the song from memory and those who sang the wrong word were punished with angry words and public shaming. Some way to deal with little kids singing a song about a kitty. It took her six years but I learned to dislike singing solo in front of a group. It's interesting to see someone else who recalls the words, I hope in a more pleasant context.
