Subject: 'and kitty too where has she gone'
From: brownd@wilton.ces.k12.ct.us
Date: 22 Mar 99 - 12:54 PM

Want to surprise grandmother with music, title and words to a lullabye she partially recalls her own mother singing to her. Reach back and help me make a 93 year old happy. Other phrases she recalls are: "they've taken her away" and "Said Charlie boy one day". Any help would be most appreciated. One person suggested contacting www.kiddidles.com -- I keep getting a FATAL ERROR message. Can anyone come up with a current address for this site?

Please help. Grandma won't last forever.

Here it is, 10 years later. Suppose Grandma made it to 103?

From Little Songs by Eliza Lee Follen (Boston: Lee and Shepard, 1875), page 37:


KITTY IN THE BASKET.

"Where is my little basket gone?"
Said Charlie boy, one day;
"I guess some little boy or girl
Has taken it away.

"And Kitty, too, I can't find her;
O, dear! what shall I do?
I wish I could my basket find,
And little Kitty, too.

"I'll go to mother's room, and look;
Perhaps she may be there,
For Kitty loves to take a nap
In mother's easy-chair.

"O, mother, mother! come and look!
See what a little heap!
My Kitty's in the basket here,
All cuddled down to sleep."

He took the basket carefully,
And brought it in a minute,
And showed it to his mother dear,
With little Kitty in it.

Oops. Just noticed I already answered the same question in another thread last May:

Won't hurt to have the answer twice, Jim.
