I love little Pussy
Her coat is so warm,
And if I don't hurt her
She'll do me no harm
So I'll not pull her tail
Or drive her away
But Pussy and I
Very gently will play
I'll sit by the fire
and give her some food
and Pussy will love me
Because I am so good

The bowdlerized version replaces _Pussy_ with _Kitty_, likewise WRT
Pussy-Cat! Pussy-Cat! Where Have You Been?  Puss In Boots will no
doubt follow. OTOH, a bit of dialogue from "House," spoken by Thirteen
- woman, for those unfamiliar with the show:

"This is the best thing that I've *ever* had in my mouth! And that
includes what *you're" thinking about."

"O tempora! O mores!"

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint
to come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
