With whiskers like yours I shall never go swimming,|
Cause they will get wet and may need a good wringing,
And then how would they keep on so cute a-curling?
'Cause no brushing or combing could bring back that twisting.
So if you must go into the water today,
Do keep those whiskers out of harm's way.
Wiggle and splash as your heart may desire,
But do keep those whiskers just a wee bit higher.
And if you must, then you must do a quick dive,
But come back up quickly to keep those whiskers alive.
