There was a Country Mouse who loved the country
There was a City Mouse who loved the city
There was a Country Mouse and a City Mouse
And they were very good friends
The Country Mouse liked to eat oats and beans
The City Mouse liked to eat cake and cheese
There was a Country Mouse and a City Mouse
And they were very good friends
The Country Mouse listened to the bugs and birds
The City Mouse listened to the cars and trucks
There was a Country Mouse and a City Mouse
And they were very good friends
The Country Mouse looked at the moon and stars
The City Mouse looked at the signs and lights
There was a Country Mouse and a City Mouse
And they were very good friends
The Country Mouse lived near the fields and trees
The City Mouse lived near the shops and streets
There was a Country Mouse and a City Mouse
And they were very good friends
The Country Mouse invited the City Mouse
The City Mouse visited the Country Mouse
There was a Country Mouse and a City Mouse
And they were very good friends
The Country Mouse showed his friend the country 
The City Mouse talked about the city
There was a Country Mouse and a City Mouse
And they were very good friends
The Country Mouse said, “Please feel at home”
The City Mouse wanted to go back home
There was a Country Mouse and a City Mouse
And they were very good friends
The City Mouse invited the Country Mouse
The Country Mouse visited the City Mouse
There was a Country Mouse and a City Mouse
And they were very good friends
The City Mouse showed his friend the city
The Country Mouse was chased by a kitty
There was a Country Mouse and a City Mouse
And they were very good friends
The City Mouse said, “Please feel at home”
The Country Mouse wanted to go back home
There was a Country Mouse and a City Mouse
And they were very good friends
There was a Country Mouse who loved the country
There was a City Mouse who loved the city
There was a Country Mouse and a City Mouse
And they were very good friends
