Time Signature:     2/4                      Key: F Major

Bought Me A Cat is a cumulative song about farm animals, originating in the British Isles and also known in North America in 1916.

Like many folk songs, it has many versions. 150 American Folk Songs pg. 8 has lyrics such as “Hen went chipsy, chopsy, Duck went slishy sloshy…”

For this recording I decided to go with animal sounds that young children might use, such as “Hen went cluck, cluck, Duck went quack, quack…”

Wikipedia states that it is known as “The Barnyard Song” as well as various titles, such as:

  • “I Bought Me a Cat”
  • “I Love My Rooster”
  • “I Bought Me a Horse”
  • “The Green Tree”
  • “There Was An Old Man of Tobago” (Source: Wikipedia )

Teaching Points: solfege – d r m s; good song for introducing re or mi re do; improvisation/word substitution.
